Over 150,000 Fresh Cases Submitted to U.S. Immigration Courts in July

In July, over 150,000 new cases were filed with U.S. immigration courts

According to data from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, these cases involve Notices To Appear for deportation hearings. The high number of new cases highlights the ongoing challenges and workload faced by immigration courts in the United States.

In July, approximately 168,000 migrants entered the United States

This number is three times higher than the monthly limit of 45,000 migrants set by the Biden administration through the CBP One app.

In 2023, the number of migrants allowed into the country has already surpassed the previous record set in 2022

Over 820,000 migrants have been admitted so far this year. Additionally, all seven months of 2023 rank among the top ten months with the highest number of immigration court cases filed since 2000. This data comes from TRAC, an organization that collects immigration-related information.

Former Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz reveals hundreds of thousands of migrants have managed to evade border authorities

Ortiz stated that around 530,000 migrants, referred to as "gotaways," have crossed the border since October without being caught. This information comes in addition to the migrants who were apprehended and given court dates.

Border authorities have sometimes failed to issue summonses to migrants due to limited resources

This is further exacerbating the ongoing migrant crisis. Additionally, the Title 42 COVID emergency rule, which allowed authorities to deport migrants quickly, ended in May.

The Biden administration has utilized its "parole" authority to admit migrants into the United States without visas

This authority has been used extensively, resulting in the admission of over 541,000 migrants over the past two years.

New York City is facing a significant challenge as it struggles to accommodate an influx of illegal immigrants seeking shelter

The city is currently housing 55,000 migrants, which has caused its homeless shelters to reach capacity. Since April of last year, over 90,000 migrants have arrived in New York City, adding to the already large homeless population. As a result, the city is now sheltering a record-breaking 105,800 people. This situation is putting a strain on resources and raising concerns about the city's ability to handle the growing number of migrants in need of assistance.

New York City has allocated $1.2 billion to assist migrants since last summer

Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, has proposed a plan to establish a tent city on Randalls Island in the East River to accommodate up to 2,000 adult migrants. The mayor cited the challenge of finding sufficient shelter beds each night as the reason behind this initiative.

The crisis involving migrants has caused frustration for Adams

He has been blaming various parties for the situation, including Texas, the White House, and New York's state government. Recently, an upstate New York county has demanded that Adams stop sending illegal migrants to their area following two alleged sexual assaults involving migrants.
