Nicaraguan Immigrants To Lose Temporary Protected Status In The US

Children hold posters asking the U.S. Federal Government to renew Temporary Protected Status during a press conference about TPS for people from Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador.

The senior officials to Trump administration says Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for about 86,000 Honduran immigrants would be extended by six months until July 2018, but he added it could be terminated at the end of the extension. "President Trump vowed to end the flagrant abuses of our immigration system".

TPS, which was first given to Nicaragua and Honduras in 1999 following Hurricane Mitch, seeks to protect people from countries ravaged by natural disasters or civil war. TPS for Haitians expires January 22, 2018, and for Salvadorans, March 9, 2018.

But the bigger impact will come when the administration makes a final decision on Salvadorans and Haitians' status.

"While it is clear that TPS protection was meant to provide refuge for people of color in Honduras, Nicaragua and Haiti, their homelands have yet to reach a place of safety or economic prosperity which would make their return feasible", Eddie Carmona, director of PICO National Network's LA RED immigrant justice campaign, said in a statement.

A supporter amongst a coalition of community leaders and immigrant advocates demonstrate outside USA immigration offices, calling on federal authorities to designate Ecuador for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for its nationals in the aftermath of last April's 7.8 magnitude quake, Wednesday June 1, 2016, in NY.

Ms Duke said she recognised "the difficulty facing citizens of Nicaragua - and potentially citizens of other countries - who have received TPS designation for close to two decades" and called on the US Congress "to enact a permanent solution for this inherently temporary programme".

It's (very) early, but the potential to be defensively dominant was evident in the Thunder's 101-94 loss the Celtics on Friday. Contrasted against the way he struggled in the first half, Irving was exceptional in sparking Boston's comeback.

BuzzFeed News previously reported that years after the United States designated El Salvador and Honduras for TPS, only residual effects of the natural disasters exist, but they have been compounded by unemployment and gang violence. That means many people would become undocumented if they can not quickly change their statuses and remain in the country.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sent a letter to DHS last week recommending the removal of Central Americans and Hattians protected under TPS.

The elimination of TPS protection for these groups would affect hundreds of thousands of people.

Congress is the only body with the authority to create a path to permanent legal status for TPS holders.

In May, TPS for Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone expired.

Ms Duke said she needed more information.

"These are people who have had to go to the Department of Homeland security every 18 months, and have shown their papers, their information, their records, have paid to be renewed. They are the fabric of our communities, and our economies and our industries", said Maria Rodriguez of the Florida Immigrant Coalition. Earlier this year, the Trump administration ended TPS for Sudanese recipients, who were told to arrange their departure or find another way to legally stay in the United States once their status expires in November 2018.
