NYC’s ICE Office Sees Asylum Appointments Booked All the Way Through 2032

In New York City, the sheer amount of illegal aliens pursuing asylum status has led to such a massive backlog in appointments that the city’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office is booked solid for the next 9 years.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the logistical jam in the city’s ICE office means that all illegals who are currently booked for an asylum appointment can spend the next 9 years living freely in the country until their court date finally arrives, effectively amounting to an amnesty-like status for nearly a decade.

The New York City ICE office currently has at least 39,216 asylum appointments as of February, thus making it the most backlogged jurisdiction in the entire country. The second- and third-most booked cities are both in Florida, with Jacksonville and Miramar booked through at least 2028.

In an effort to ease the logistical stress for the asylum processing system, the Biden Administration made changes by adding a new step to the process. Whereas illegals who crossed the border seeking asylum would be issued a Notice to Appear (NTA) in immigration court, such illegals are now first issued a Notice to Report (NTR) to the ICE office that is located closest to their final destination so that they can enter the asylum court system.

When even the NTR program became too cumbersome, federal authorities stopped issuing them in late 2021 and instead began implementing the parole-like Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program. This program sees most illegals agree to be tracked by either GPS or report their status via a smartphone app.

For the over 800,000 illegal aliens that the Biden Administration deliberately released into the country’s interior between March of 2021 and February of 2023, New York City was the top destination for many illegals. Overall, more than 5.5 million illegals have crossed the southern border into the United States since Biden first took power, resulting in a massive national security and humanitarian crisis the likes of which the country has never seen before.
