U.S. sets final date for Nicaraguan immigrants' protected status

Administration Official Dangles 'Amnesty' for 350000 Semi-Illegals

The program was extended to both countries after Hurricane Mitch hit Central America in 1998. "They are hardworking individuals who have substantial roots in this country and have made contributions to our society and local economies".

The decision affects about 2,500 Nicaraguans, many of whom have lived in the USA for almost two decades, raising US-born children. Haitians have been eligible for TPS and now the Trump Administration has until May 23 to make a decision on extending TPS for Haitians or allowing it to expire on July 22, which would mean possible deportation for the current TPS holders.

"Every 16 hours there is a woman killed in Honduras", said Oscar Chacón from the Alianza Américas, stating the country remains one of the most risky places in the world. Instead, they're getting a six-month extension, with a decision at a later date.

By 23 November, the Department of Homeland Security will have to make a decision on whether to extend protective status for 46,000 Haitian immigrants granted TPS after the 2010 natural disaster.

Immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) are allowed to live and work in the United States if it is determined that they are unable to safely return to their home country because of an environmental disaster, armed conflict, or other extraordinary conditions.

Central American immigrants have had TPS longer than any other group.

Mukul Roy joins BJP, says it will come to power in Bengal
TMC has been accusing him of hobnobbing with the BJP. "Without BJP, the Trinamool Congress could not have established itself". The former railway minister was earlier also questioned by the CBI in connection with the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.

Ms Duke said she needed more information. "These are people who are working, who are paying their taxes, and we hope that when the time comes when they follow this process in the USA, that we will have the opportunity to have a renewal of the Temporary Protection Status or some way to have our countrymen continue to live in this country".

The DHS has given the Nicaraguan migrants 14 months to leave the USA or change their immigration status.

"I think they deserve to have some sense of belonging", he said.

Trump officials say previous administrations have disregarded immigration laws for too long, and they said Monday's decision was one signal that the era of automatic renewals for TPS recipients has ended. "That will send them underground, and make them subject to all sorts of abuses, but also without being able to contribute to the economy in the way they have been". It authorizes employment and protection from deportation for about 320,000 people from 10 countries.

Belinda Osorio, a Honduran-American who lives and works in Florida and has been in the USA for decades through TPS, told reporters at a conference call on Tuesday that she would not put her 14-year-old son in danger by going back to Honduras, regardless of the administration's eventual decision.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took the same tack, accusing the administration of "senseless prejudice" and denouncing the TPS decision as a "cowardly assault on thousands of families in communities across the nation", reports the Washington Post.
