DHS Ends Protected Immigration Status For 5K Nicaraguans

A plea against deportation

For the 2,500 Nicaraguan immigrants now protected by TPS, this move will be dire as these people have built lives in the United States and their native country has a great deal of instability. The Miami Herald frames the renewals as being a longstanding "source of controversy" as the repeated 18-month renewals have allowed many to "temporarily" be here for as long as 20 years.

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.

The administration is also postponing a decision until next July on how deal with a similar program for 86,000 residents from Honduras.

Elaine Duke said the country's TPS designation would therefore have to be terminated. TPS for Haitians expires January 22, 2018, and for Salvadorans, March 9, 2018. Haitians affected by the decision number 46,000.

TPS and other contentious immigration policy issues are likely to feature prominently in Nielsen's confirmation hearing Wednesday. The secretary of homeland security decides whether a country is unsafe for its nationals to return, revoking or extending the special protected status. It authorizes employment and protection from deportation for about 320,000 people from 10 countries.

Countries like Honduras and El Salvador have previously asked the Trump administration to extend the special protected status to its citizens. Hondurans' TPS has been temporarily extended until July 2018 to allow USA officials more time to assess conditions in Honduras.

Secretary of Commerce, said it's unfair for the U.S.to take on the world's trade surplus in its deficit. Navigator got 8 percent of its revenue past year shipping gas from Sibur.

"We recognize that it's a sovereign decision of the USA, but we see also how troubled our compatriots are", Hernandez said.

Tillerson said the authority rested on DHS, but added that the State Department provides input when the decision is about to be made.

El Salvador originally got its protected status following two separate earthquakes in 2001. Congress created the program in 1990 to prevent foreigners-primarily undocumented immigrants-who were already in the United States from being returned to countries suffering from natural disasters or ongoing armed conflict.

DHS ended TPS for several African nations this year, including Sudan and Sierra Leone, but Central Americans and Haitians make up the vast majority of TPS recipients, and they are the longest tenured.

Kelly, now White House chief of staff, said the goal 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".
