USA sets final date for Nicaraguan immigrants' protected status

A plea against deportation

Immigration advocates decried a Department of Homeland Security decision to end Temporary Protected Status for 2,500 Nicaraguans who have been living in the United States for almost 20 years.

But on Monday the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security announced that the "substantial but temporary conditions caused in Nicaragua by Hurricane Mitch no longer exist" and that its TPS designation would therefore have to be terminated.

The longstanding TPS designations have allowed hundreds of thousands of Central American nationals to avoid deportation for decades, putting even more political pressure on the Trump administration to extend TPS for people who now have familial and business roots in the U.S. Following Duke's announcement, Democratic lawmakers attacked the Trump administration for its supposed indifference to immigrant families.

Hondurans and Nicaraguans were given the protected status in response to Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Assuming the Republican-controlled Senate approves Nielsen's nomination, she will have until Thanksgiving Day to make a decision on TPS for Haiti and until early January to do the same for El Salvador. Instead, they're getting a six-month extension, with a decision at a later date.

Of course, SquareTrade offers up insurance plans which are often cheaper than plans you may be able to get through your carrier. Overall, Jerry's impressed with the iPhone X's durability even though the phone has a fragile glass OLED display and back.

Despite the "temporary" designation, TPS has become something of a permanent immigration benefit for many Nicaraguans, Hondurans and El Salvadorans living in the US without any other legal status. The administration has also canceled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and sharply cut the number of refugees eligible for resettlement in the United States, amid other efforts to limit immigration. As its name suggests, TPS is ostensibly a short-term humanitarian benefit that lets foreign nationals stay while their home countries recover from catastrophes such as civil wars, natural disasters or epidemics.

McGrorty, executive director of Catholic Legal Services in the Archdiocese of Miami, said USA law is meant to be implemented "with a certain degree of kindness and compassion", and that sending people to countries that are ill-prepared to welcome them would do far more harm than good.

"I think they deserve to have some sense of belonging", he said. "That's unfair", she said of Homeland Security officials.

The irresponsible decision to end the TPS for Nicaraguans will tear families apart and disrupt the lives of these working individuals, the president of the Congress Hispanic Legislative Group, Michelle Lujan said on the measure announced yesterday.

New Book Claims Bushes Had Harsh Words For Trump
Bush have consistently expressed their disagreement with President Donald Trump , through his election and into his presidency . Bush told Updegrove, "or you can come up with ideas to deal with it".

Many hope the Trump administration will decide against eliminating TPS. But they say those problems should be addressed in other ways, and returning migrants can help foster development in their home countries.

They called for TPS to be extended at 18-month intervals, as the current law requires, until Congress hammers out a legal fix. It authorizes employment and protection from deportation for about 320,000 people from 10 countries.

Kelly, now White House chief of staff, said the objective of the six-month extension was to "allow Haitian TPS recipients living in the United States time to attain travel documents and make other necessary arrangements for their ultimate departure from the United States".
