    Trump envoy: Protected status for Venezuelan migrants 'under consideration'

    Trump envoy: Protected status for Venezuelan migrants 'under consideration'

    President Trump's point person on Venezuela on Tuesday said the administration is considering granting Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for migrants fleeing that country's political and economic turmoil.

    Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams said at a press briefing on Tuesday that there has not been a final decision on the issue but that the protections were “under consideration.”

    Abrams comments come after President Trump earlier this month first floated the possibility of expanding TPS to the thousands of Venezuelans who have fled to the U.S., "We're looking at that very seriously," Trump said.

    TPS is granted to individuals fleeing natural disaster or war in their home country and allows them to legally live and work in the United States while the crisis at home resolves.

    Expanding the program would be a shift for the administration which has worked to remove protected status for thousands of immigrants from other countries, including El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan.

    Trump’s decision to end protections for migrants from those four countries was put on hold by a federal judge in October in a preliminary injunction. The administration is appealing that ruling to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Congress is also considering extending TPS for Venezuelans. Last month, the House Judiciary Committee approved the Venezuela TPS Act of 2019, which would grant TPS to Venezuelans living in the U.S.

    Around four million Venezuelans have fled the country amid hyperinflation and political violence under the regime of Nicolás Maduro, according to the UN Refugee Agency.

    NO! Please stop repeating stupidity. This nation is turning more blue, more purple and our freedoms and rights are threatened with the millions of illegal aliens and refugees being permitted to come and stay through ignoring of laws and numerous programs. These people will guarantee democrat control in future elections.

    This government and its representatives are destroying America by the flooding of our country with too many other nations’ citizens. They find any excuse to bring the troubles, poverty, illiteracy, socialist thinking of millions of foreign citizens here when there are other nations closer to them to help.

    More and more we witness America as a dumping ground for anyone and everyone with problems and our citizens are expected to put the needs of these people first and to pay for it or suffer shame and name calling.

    Neocon Elliot Abrams
    For Deputy Secretary of State?

    By Stephen Lendman
    Trump is considering him for the department’s number two position - perhaps an especially powerful one while Rex Tillerson transitions from Big Oil to diplomacy.

    Trump transition advisor James Carafano believes Abrams is “pretty close to being named” - best known for his role in the 1980s Iran-Contra affair.

    It involved covertly selling arms to Iran to fund Contra anti-Sandinista terrorists in Nicaragua. The Boland Amendment prohibited it.

    For his role in the scheme, Abrams was indicted for lying to Congress, pled guilty to two lesser offenses of withholding information from Congress to avoid a trial, possible conviction and imprisonment.

    On Christmas night 1992, GHW Bush pardoned him and other Iran-Contra defendants - their high crimes forgiven, not forgotten.

    In 1998, Abrams and other PNAC members urged “decisive action” to replace Federal Republic of Yugoslavia President Slobodan Milosevic with pro-Western leadership. The nation’s 1999 rape followed, one of many Clinton administration high crimes.

    The same year, Abrams was one of 18 PNAC signatories in a letter to Clinton, urging war on Iraq and removal of Saddam Hussein, calling him a “hazard (to) a significant portion of the world’s supply of oil.”

    In the GW Bush administration, he was one of its architects. He drafted a proposal for seizing Iraq’s oil fields. The US installed puppet regime maintained control.

    During Reagan’s two terms, Abrams held three State Department positions, including Assistant secretary for Inter-American Affairs from July 17, 1985 - January 20, 1989.

    He later served as GW Bush’s Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor, supervising White House Middle East policy.

    He was instrumental in the aborted two-day coup attempt to replace Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez with puppet leadership serving US interests.

    In 2007, he was part of a black operation to destabilize Iran, using disinformation and manipulation of its currency, aiming for regime change.

    He was a Project for the New American Century (PNAC) signatory (now called the Foreign Policy Initiative), established in 1997, comprised of neocon extremists, dedicated to seeking US global dominance through endless wars of aggression.

    He’s currently connected to the neocon American Enterprise Institute (AEI), the Heritage Foundation, the Council on Foreign Relations, and various other hardline groups.

    He’s a notorious Zionist zealot, opposed to sympathies toward Palestinians, fundamentally against Israeli concessions to achieve conflict resolution.

    He’s interventionist, pro-endless wars of aggression, advocating nation-building, what Trump said he opposes.

    If appointed State’s number two, will neocon foreign policy continue unabated? Will endless imperial wars rage?

    Will confrontation with China and Iran follow, risking possible nuclear war? Will hope for improved relations with Russia be dashed? Will Congress prevent it anyway?

    Will dirty business as usual remain unchanged, especially US imperial madness, or will Trump manage to go another way?

    America needs more peacemakers, fewer warriors. It’s not the way things usually work out.

    Stephen Lendman lives in Chicago. He can be reached at

    His new book as editor and contributor is titled "Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks WW III."

    DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT, WE'RE IN GOOD HANDS WITH THIS MAN!!!!! This guy was a member of this Neo-Con thinktank called PNAC which called for a NEW PEARL HARBOR in a position paper it wrote a few years in advance of 9-11 and after a # of this group's members were given KEY POSITIONS within the Pentagon by Bush 2. PNAC and the ISRAELI MOSSAD did 9-11 and they got away with it. These people NEVER LOOSE. This guy has always been part of the WINNING TEAM and will take care of us.
