asylum seekers who have exhausted their right to appeal
Uitgeprocedeerd literally means: now completely finished, through, done, with litigating. Uit in this context has a meaning equivalent to the meaning "out" has in "burned out."
A possibly humourous or sarcastic way of referring to the two characters as aliens (now potentially illegal) who have used up all their options to appeal an immigration courts' rejection of their petition for asylum. Conversely it might just be describing the asylum seekers as having completed the legal process, this not necessarily having lead to their petition having been rejected.
You might want to wait for someone to come up with a more compact English equivalent.
