    Trump Admin Open To Amnesty Deal For Non-DACA People

    Trump Admin Open To Amnesty Deal For Non-DACA People

    Yesterday, 11:11 PM

    The Trump administration is open to an amnesty for illegal immigrants not covered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, according to an administration official.

    The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, was talking to reporters Monday about the Department of Homeland Security’s decision regarding Temporary Protected Status for roughly 86,000 Hondurans and 5,300 Nicaraguans. The two nations have received TPS since 1999 and it gives them access to public benefits, protection from deportation and the ability to work.

    The program is designed for immigrants who can’t return to their home country due to a disaster of sorts, both Honduras and Nicaragua were hit by Hurricane Mitch in 1998.

    Acting Secretary Elaine Duke decided to terminate TPS for Nicaragua with the end date in January 2019, and delay her decision on the status for Honduras.

    The administration official said that there “are a number of individuals who have been in a TPS status” for two decades. He couldn’t give the amount of TPS beneficiaries who are illegal immigrants, however, the nature of the program means that beneficiaries don’t currently have legal status in the U.S.

    “Given the lengthy period of their presence here Congress may wish to find a solution that allows them a more permanent status versus this 18 month to 18 month temporary fix that has been going on for two decades,” the official said. “That is up to Congress, but the administration would support Congress’ efforts to find such a solution.”

    President Donald Trump announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in September and called on Congress to give the roughly 800,000 DACA beneficiaries legal status. He has since said that he expects a DACA amnesty deal to be paired with chain-migration reforms, which would in effect lower legal immigration.

    The official did not lay out any negotiating position in regards to a TPS amnesty, but added, “We do hope and encourage Congress to look at this and find a solution.”

    Three Florida congressmen introduced legislation last week to give legal permanent resident status to over 300,000 illegal immigrants covered by TPS from Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Haiti.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Washington DC elites have forgotten the word TEMPORARY in Temporarty Protective Status! (TPS) It is ridiculous these people are still here claiming they cant go back to their home nations 20 years after a freaking hurricane hit in the late 90's!

    Time to revoke all ancient TPS provisions and send these "Temporary" refugees back home! Should have been done 15 years ago.

    One has to wonder @ the tens of thousands a year from central america that obama admitted to USA, escorted them to a legal or illegal relative so they can collect monthly monies, schooling, healthcare, smart phone, being included in this deceptive move "been here 20yrs" etc. All these creeps are staying unless they get caught molesting a child, murdering someone or moving drugs and we will pay for them all and their future anchor babies! We have jobs for them?

    Acting DHS Secretary Rejects “Temporary” in Temporary Protected Status (TPS) Despite State Department Advice to the Contrary Charges FAIR

    The question now is whether DHS will act in concert with the president, the rest of the administration, and the expressed wishes of the American people, or will it continue to bow to external pressures on immigration?
    -Dan Stein (November 7th, 2017, Washington, D.C.)
    On Monday, Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke largely ignored a State Department recommendation that the nearly two-decades-long Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for more than 400,000 Central Americans and Haitians be terminated. In a letter to Ms. Duke, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated that conditions in the Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Haiti no longer justify continuation of TPS.

    Despite that assessment, Duke extended TPS for 86,000 Hondurans, while announcing that about 5,000 Nicaraguans would lose that status come January 2019. More disturbingly, Duke torpedoed the entire concept of offering temporary protection to people whose homelands have been affected by some unforeseen event. In a press release announcing her decision, Duke suggested that the long-term abuse of TPS that has resulted in over 400,000 people remaining here decades after the triggering event necessitates that “Congress…enact a permanent solution to this inherently temporary program.”

    “There is a permanent solution to this situation and others that may arise in the future. That is for Congress to ensure that TPS is not ‘inherently’ a temporary program, but is actually temporary, as the T in its name indicates,” responded Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration (FAIR). “The hurricane that struck Central America in 1998 is not the reason why citizens of those countries still enjoy TPS in 2017. They are still here because the people who willingly accepted our temporary offer, their advocates, and their governments have abused our generosity and managed to get the program extended far beyond any reasonable definition of temporary.

    “It is also important to remember that many people who have been granted TPS were in this country illegally at the time of the triggering events, and never had any intention of returning home,” continued Stein. “Now the Acting Secretary of DHS is suggesting that our nation’s generosity be used against us by arguing that we owe them a permanent amnesty. Abuse of TPS by guests – most of whom should not have been here in the first place – and foreign governments that value remittances sent home by their citizens more than they value the citizens themselves, should never be rewarded.”

    Duke’s announcement coincides with the start of the confirmation process for her permanent replacement, Kirstjen Nielsen. At tomorrow’s confirmation hearing, Senators will have an opportunity to seek clarity from Nielsen about the direction the department will take on TPS and other immigration matters. “President Trump vowed to end the flagrant abuses of our immigration system. Secretary Tillerson has made clear his department’s assessment of conditions in Central America and Haiti. The question now is whether DHS will act in concert with the president, the rest of the administration, and the expressed wishes of the American people, or will it continue to bow to external pressures on immigration?,” Stein concluded.
