The surge in asylum seekers entering Canada through unofficial border crossings, including many whose bus tickets were paid for by the New York City and aid agencies, is intensifying pressure on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reach an agreement with President Joe Biden to close the entire land border to most asylum seekers. The people are discouraged by long processing times and restrictive definitions of asylum, says aid officials and interviews with asylum seekers. Some who arrive in the U.S. must wait more than four years for a date to appear in immigration court. Meanwhile, the average processing time for refugee applications in Canada was 25 months in the first 10 months of 2022, up from 15 months in 2019, according to the Immigration and Refugee Board.
