California and New York approve over 60% of asylum cases—far more than Texas or Florida

Just 23 percent of claims were approved in Florida, and 19 percent in Texas.

A new report has revealed that asylum seekers are nearly three times more likely to have their claims approved in Democrat-led New York and California versus Texas and Florida, which are controlled by Republicans.

The results come as both blue states continue to deal with an unprecedented influx of illegal immigrants that has strained both the resources of sanctuary cities such as NYC and San Francisco, and the patience of residents who have to deal with the flood of people entering their neighborhoods.

Data compiled by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse revealed that asylum seekers who apply in New York and California are approved 61 and 66 percent of the time, respectively, according to the New York Post.

In contrast, just 23 percent of claims were approved in Florida, and 19 percent in Texas.

Between January and August 2023, nearly 8,700 asylum seekers were granted entry in California, just over 8,200 in New York. Only 1,309 were allowed to remain in Texas, while in Florida that number was less than 1,000.

This year brought a never-before-seen rise in asylum applications, with New York and California adjudicating more cases in the first eight months than all of 2022. Nationwide, over 900,000 people were granted entry into the United States on "humanitarian parole" and made eligible to apply for asylum.

More applications combined with an increase in approvals under the Biden administration has resulted in the border crisis spreading far beyond the states that border Mexico. 

In New York City, for example, Mayor Eric Adams has long pleaded with migrants not to come as there are no longer resources available to house and feed them.

"It's not 'if' people will be sleeping on the streets, it's when," he said. "We are at full capacity. We have to sort of localize it as much as possible. We have to make sure that people have some type of restroom facilities, some type of shower network."

More than 10,000 illegal immigrants flood into the city each month, as part of the Biden administration's failed border policies that have admitted some 7 million illegal border crossers since he took office in 2021. Under Trump's final year in office in 2020, less than 500,000 illegal border crossers were admitted.
