    NumbersUSA: Feds again extend 1999 'temporary' amnesty - TEMPORARY IS FOREVER

    Newsletter Week of Oct 17

    This Issue: TEMPORARY IS FOREVER -- Administration today granted another extension of Temporary Protected Status to illegal aliens first given 'temporary' residence in 1999 & 2001

    It was so predictable that it is impossible to be shocked. The Obama Administration today continued the tradition of the Bush and Clinton Administrations of pretending that "temporary" means "permanent" and that giving work permits to foreign citizens has no effect on working-age Americans.
    Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible nationals of Honduras and Nicaragua for an additional 18 months. The affected illegal aliens have been in this country since the beginning o f this century. Although Congress never granted them amnesty, they are still here because Pres. George W. Bush and then Pres. Barack Obama have issued one extension after another to people first given "temporary" amnesty from deportation in 1999 (Hondurans) and 2001 (Nicaraguans).

    The fact that they are still here to benefit from this latest extension is proof of the corruption of the TPS tool that makes a mockery of a well-intended humanitarian program.

    TPS was created as an emergency policy to allow the Executive Branch to temporarily spare illegal aliens deportation when "extraordinary and te mporary" conditions such as environmental disasters or wars in their home country temporarily make repatriation exceptionally difficult.
    Needless to say the temporary contemporary emergency conditions of 1999 and 2001 are long since past. But as we at NumbersUSA and many of our allies have often said, "In matters of immigration, nothing is quite so permanent as temporary status."
    Other long-time illegal aliens who currently benefit from the TPS designation are those from El Salvador, Haiti, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and Syria.

    One form of Executive amnesty and enforcement-law nullification after another has added to the labor surpluses that bedevil the incomes of American wage-earners and their families.
    But the greatest contributor to the labor surpluses is Congress through its insistence on adding about one million new legal immigrants a year to compete for U.S. jobs.
    That's why NumbersUSA is running this ad in most of the states with the hottest Senate races:

    (Click to watch the TV ad.)

    These are states where candidates are having to pay attention to what voters really care about. Our intent is to apply as much pressure as possible on all the Senate candidates to shape their immigration positions on the basis of what is best for Americans and legal immigrants already here.
    We hope you are participating in the many ways that our NumbersUSA staff is providing for you to raise this simple question in immigration policy:

    As the ad notes, nearly all job growth since 2000 has gone to new immigrants.
    The l egal immigrants who took the jobs did nothing wrong. They merely used an opening offered by Congress. But why should Congress continue to do this?
    Thanks for all that you have done and please stay as active as possible in these final two weeks of the Senate campaigns.

    DHS Opens Door to New Immigrants from Haiti, Extends Special Protections For Honduran

    DHS Opens Door to New Immigrants from Haiti, Extends Special Protections For Honduran, Nicaraguan Immigrants

    by Caroline May 17 Oct 2014, 12:36 PM PDT

    The Department of Homeland Security announced Friday that is will be extending Temporary Protected Status to nationals from Honduras and Nicaragua for an additional 18 months and instituting a new program to bring thousands of Haitian immigrants to U.S.

    Temporary Protected Status is a designation the DHS secretary may declare for certain foreign countries if “conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country's nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.”

    The status allows the protected nationals — in this case those from Honduras and Nicaragua — to remain and be eligible to work in the United States.

    Honduran and Nicaraguan nationals must apply to extend their TPS between Oct. 16, 2014 through Dec. 15, 2014 and the 18 month extension will run from Jan. 6, 2015, through July 5, 2016. They will also need to re-apply for work authorizations.

    Additionally, DHS announced a new program to allow thousands, the Miami Herald reported, of Haitians to legally come to the United States.

    According to DHS, the Haitian Family Reunification Parole (HFRP) Program will expedite the “family reunification” of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who have family members in Haiti by allowing such immigrants whose family-based visa petitions have already been approved come to the U.S. two years early.

    “The rebuilding and development of a safe and economically strong Haiti is a priority for the United States,” Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement. ”The Haitian Family Reunification Parole program promotes a fundamental underlying goal of our immigration system – family reunification.”

    The program will also allow the new immigrants to apply for work permits.

    “Legal authority for the HFRP program is provided under the Immigration and Nationality Act which authorizes the Secretary of Homeland Security to parole into the United States certain individuals, on a case-by-case basis, for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit,” DHS explained in a release Friday. “This is the same legal authority used to establish the Cuban Family Reunification Parole program in 2007.”

    An aide to Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) noted that these re-authorizations and new program is coming at a time when the middle class is struggling, 48 million Americans are in poverty and net unemployment growth in the U.S. has largely gone to immigrants since 2000.

    “As numerical context for these executive actions, keep in mind that the Census Bureau reports that total immigration levels have reached a record 41.3 million,” the aide emailed. “Each year, the US issues 1 million green cards to permanent immigrants (largely lesser-skilled), 700,000 guest worker permits, 500,000 foreign students, and 70,000 refugees and asylees.”
