Thousands of Nicaraguans in the US Just Got Bad News

Administration Official Dangles 'Amnesty' for 350000 Semi-Illegals

In a statement issued Monday night, the Department of Homeland Security said that Nicaraguans with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) have until January 5, 2019 in order to return home or seek a permanent immigration status.

The migrants were previously allowed to stay in the US under Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, after hurricane Mitch hit Central America back in 1998.

Immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) are allowed to live and work in the U.S. 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. Duke had determined the adverse conditions in Nicaragua left by Hurricane Mitch no longer exist, officials said.

The presidents of both Honduras and El Salvador have urged the Trump administration to extend the program, citing the contributions that TPS holders make to their economies by sending money home and the destabilizing effects of thousands of people returning.

"People have been here for 25 years", Shannon said, "and for 25 years they have been working with a legal temporary visa". Those countries are among nine that Reuters reports TPS now covers; the other five are Nepal, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

In March, DHS extended TPS for Haiti by six months, although many interpreted this move as a sign that they opposed the program and would be terminating it this fall. 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.

Amy Shannon -senior advisor for Alianza Americas, a regional network of Latin American and Caribbean immigrant organizations involved in negotiating for the decriminalization of migration in the region- said the elimination of TPS would affect more people than the recent termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. He plays lacrosse at Ohio Valley University in West Virginia, she said. Barahona said she would probably remain in the United States illegally and "stay as long as possible".

"The Trump Administration's irresponsible decision to end TPS for Nicaraguans will tear apart families and upend the lives of these hard-working individuals", Michelle Lujan Grisham, D-N.M., chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, said in a statement Monday.

Many hope the Trump administration will decide against eliminating TPS. DHS can renew the program for up to 18 months at a time.

"They have roots in this country". It authorizes employment and protection from deportation for about 320,000 people from 10 countries. DHS had announced six months earlier that it was extending the protection for just another six months so for immigrants to prepare to go back.
