    John Kelly-Appointed DHS Official Urges: Extend Work Permits for 300,000 Migrants

    The federal government should provide extended protective status to 300,000 non-citizens living in the United States, says a top John Kelly-appointee at President Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security.

    The proposed temporary amnesty comes from James (Jim) D. Nealon, the assistant secretary for International Affairs in DHS’s Office of Strategy, Policy, and Plans, just as top officials debate whether to end the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations for nationals from four Central American countries, many of whom have benefitted from status renewals for close to two decades.


    They “work legally in great numbers,” are “liv[ing] the American dream,” and “have many thousands of American citizen children,” “it makes no sense to send [citizens of Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador] back to their country of origin,” Nealon, a former U.S. ambassador to Honduras appointed in 2014 by then-President Barack Obama, argues in an October 31, 2017, memorandum obtained by Breitbart News.


    In the memo, Nealon urges acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke to extend these three countries’ TPS designations for 18 months, speaking on behalf of foreigners in an administration that is supposedly aiming to “Buy American, Hire American”.


    “While TPS was always meant to be temporary,” Nealon says, these non-citizens “have jobs” in America and “have a very high workforce participation rate, much higher than the national average.”
    As of October 2017, 6.5 million Americans are unemployed.


    Nealon was appointed by former DHS Secretary and now-White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly, having served within the U.S. Southern Command as civilian deputy to then-Commander Kelly and later as then-President Barack Obama’s ambassador to Honduras.

    During his stint as DHS Secretary, Kelly granted a short-term TPS extension to Haiti despite the original reason for its designation, a 2010 earthquake, having long passed. (More than 58,000 Haitians already illegally present in the U.S. registered for TPS that year). Kelly also encouraged Congress to come up with a legislative fix to help those living in America with TPS.


    Founded in 1990, the little-known TPS program was designed to grant temporary amnesty to foreigners whose home countries faced an unexpected event. The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) gives DHS the authority to decide which countries should receive this status so long as the countries meet certain statutory requirements: an armed conflict or civil war; an environmental disaster (such as an earthquake or hurricane), or an epidemic; or “other extraordinary and temporary conditions” — that would make it unsafe for them to return home. (Living in America or having an American job do not count.)

    The acting secretary must make her decisions based on what’s in the statute, and while the statute does say the secretary has limited discretion to re-designate/extend relief based on what the country in question’s post-crisis conditions are like, Nealon does not cite the law or mention whether or not it is actually safe to return.


    Nealon instead cites foreign-relations considerations in his emotional appeal.


    For example, the influx of returnees for Nealon would put “a huge burden on employment” in home countries, something, he says, would be akin to “working against ourselves.”




    “The United States is currently investing approximately 700 million dollars annually in Central America, aimed at mitigating the push factors of migration,” he writes in the memo:

    The point of this assistance is to reduce the very high levels of violence, improve governance and weak institutions like the police and courts, and create economic opportunities such that Central Americans see their futures at home and not in the United States. Much of this assistance is aimed, directly or indirectly, at improving the ability of these countries to re-integrate their citizens.


    The U.S.’s efforts to change these, what Nealon calls, “dynamics on the ground” “have been very positive,” but he warns “there is still a very long way to go.”


    “[T]heir economies are still not capable of creating sufficient job and opportunities for their young and growing populations. We are still years away from a Central America in which people see their futures at home and not in the United States.”


    Nealon’s letter directly contrasts with the State Department’s conclusion that protected status is no longer justified for Central Americans and Haitians and appears to show Nealon’s lingering ties with the region.


    DHS is expected to announce its final decisions Monday for the estimated 57,000 Hondurans and 2,500 Nicaraguans who have had protected status in the U.S. since 1998 following Earthquake Mitch and whose TPS protections expire in January.

    Oh my God, get rid of these Obamaites, stop wasting our time, energy and money on these idiots. Eliminate the position, we don't need an Assistant Secretary of International Relations in DHS to begin with. That's what we have Secretary of State to do. Fire him and keep the position vacant until it can be eliminated, along with all his staff and anyone else involved in "international relations" in DHS.

    This is a perfect example of the DUPLICATION, that President Trump wants to get rid of and stop wasting our money on.

    Get them out of here along with all the central americans obama let in and are costing us big time with schooling, expensive 2nd language teachers, healthcare/dental, monthly $$ dole more than the average American citizen retiree receives in benefits and their rapes, murders, drugs.

    They have a tropical climate, can grow fruits, produce, have seafood farms, solar farms, etc, etc, - let us make money$$ in retribution for $$$$ they have cost us as taxpayers for all these places, PR included, instead of the never ending DRAIN!

    This just goes to show what we've always known ....... John Kelly is not a friend to our cause! What in the world was Kelly thinking when he hired an Obama holdover? Of course it makes sense that Kelly would hire Nelson since he formally worked under Kelly in the past and is probably his buddy.

    Additionally, ...

    During his stint as DHS Secretary, Kelly granted a short-term TPS extension to Haiti despite the original reason for its designation, a 2010 earthquake, having long passed. (More than 58,000 Haitians already illegally present in the U.S. registered for TPS that year). Kelly also encouraged Congress to come up with a legislative fix to help those living in America with TPS.
    Now the ball is in DHS Secretary Elaine Duke's court. While she is a presidential appointment, it was John Kelly who pushed for her hiring. Kelly was also the one who originally brought her into DHS as his second, or right hand woman if you will. We'll see what happens ......

    John F. Kelly

    John Francis Kelly
    (born May 11, 1950) is the current White House Chief of Staff for U.S. President Donald Trump, previously serving as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security in the same administration.


    Kelly is a retired United States Marine Corps general and the former commander of United States Southern Command, the unified combatant command responsible for American military operations in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. He had previously served as the commanding general of the Multi-National Force West in Iraq from February 2008 to February 2009, and as the commander of Marine Forces Reserve and Marine Forces North in October 2009.[2]

    Kelly succeeded General Douglas M. Fraser as commander of U.S. Southern Command on November 19, 2012[3] and was in turn succeeded by Navy Admiral Kurt W. Tidd on January 14, 2016.


    Kelly was appointed Secretary of Homeland Security on January 20, 2017, by President Trump.


    On July 28, 2017, he was appointed to replace Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff, taking office on July 31, 2017 shortly after Priebus had officially left his post.

    At six months, Kelly's term as Secretary of Homeland Security is the briefest in the office's relatively short history.

    American's URGE you to shut TPS down and start deporting them all.

    Cut off all welfare, food stamps, medical care, school now.

    Schedule barges, trains and busses to the border and ship them out.

    "Temporary" is a LIE...we want them out of here!

    No more extensions...send the message...we are not the dumping ground for the World any more!

    Go fix your own countries.
    ILLEGAL ALIENS HAVE "BROKEN" OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM

    DO NOT REWARD THEM - DEPORT THEM ALL
