Due to an influx of migrants from Central America and new policies from the State Department that give priority to unaccompanied minors and families facing deportation, thousands of other foreign nationals waiting for their cases to be heard through the immigration courts have had their interviews canceled. Asylum seekers have felt the brunt of the delays, with many of them being told that they won’t have their asylum interview until 2019. These foreign nationals must live with the uncertainty of not knowing whether their asylum application will be approved, or if they will have to return to the land from which they fled. Furthermore, as time passes, their applications may weaken due to outdated evidence.
