    Question about TPS (temporary protected status)

    I am hispanic and I am fed up with central american gang members (MS 13) in my community. I would like to know if there is any initinative to request that TPS (temporary protected status) come to an end. After all it is "temporary" El Salvador and Honduras are current Central American countries are receiving TPS. If anybody can point in a direction or group that is tackling this issue, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I have only found this so far - http://www.vdare.com/mann/tps.htm

    Welcome to Alipac.

    We are all fed up with the gangs, especially MS 13. This group recruits in our local schools and is responsible for a burned body murder here also. You need to let your Senators and Representatives know that this is something you want addressed. Get the message out that this practice has been going on and that you are concerned. Speak to someone or have someone to call you back. Email if this is better for a response.

    There’s nothing as permanent as temporary immigration status.

    Our editors here at National Review Online pointed out last week that “It’s Worse Than You Think

    Many cities and states are tackling the MS 13 gang problem with various programs to identify and deport these gang members. Operation Community Shield is one and there are other gang suppression units operating in local communities. The FBI takes this gang seriously for the deadly threat they are to law enforcement and the public in general.

    You need to let your City and County know you are concerned about the MS 13 gang, you need to offer information to educate your city officials and others about the threat from their very presence, you need to search the internet for this topic and link up with those who are actively addressing this situation. Shine light in the dark places.

    Direct individuals to the National Geographic documentary video on the MS 13 gang as well as other videos and news relating to their crimes.

    You can do so much.

    FEDUPHISPANIC: I DONT THINK TPS COVERS GANG MEMBERS OR MORE SPECIFICALLY ANYONE CHARGED WITH A CRIME. I AM PRETTY SURE IT ONLY PROTECTS ILLEGALS....IF THAT IS THE ONLY CRIME. MANY WHO WERE PICKED UP IN RAIDS AND CHARGED WITH IDENTITY FRAUD WERE IN FACT DEPORTED....EVEN SALVADORENOS AND THOSE FROM GUATAMALA. IT DOES NOT PROTECT THEM ALL. ESPECIALLY NOT THOSE THAT COMMIT SERIOUS VIOLENT CRIMES. THEY SEND THEM BACK RIGHT AWAY. I KNOW SOMEONE FROM EL SALVADOR AND HE HAS TOLD ME THAT EL SALVADOR IS FILLING UP WITH DEPORTED GANG MEMBERS. ITS BECOMING A PROBLEM DOWN THERE.

    Statement of FAIR Regarding Temporary Protected Status (TPS) For Illegal Aliens from El Salvador

    UsInfo, Marzo 6, 2001
    Externo


    WASHINGTON, March 6 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following is a statement of FAIR regarding Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for illegal aliens from El Salvador:

    President George W. Bush's decision to grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to El Salvadorans living illegally in the United States is a misguided gesture in a time of crisis, when a more a targeted and effective course of action is needed. Allowing hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to remain in the United States is neither appropriate nor effective as a response to the devastation in El Salvador from two powerful earthquakes. In addition, based on the track record of TPS authorizations, it is certain that it will be anything but temporary.

    What El Salvador needs at this time of crisis is manpower and technical assistance to help the country rebuild from back-to-back earthquakes. The United States can make its greatest contribution to overcoming the destruction through targeted foreign aid and the expertise of government personnel such as the Army Corps of Engineers. We should be working with Salvadorans to rebuild and create a sustainable economic future, rather than encouraging that country's best workers to emigrate.

    The TPS program, which was instituted in 1990, has proven to be a sham. The word temporary is a lie. Rather than requiring the eventual departure of those who receive temporary protection, invariably the program results in their permanent settlement. Most of these people came here illegally (before disaster struck), and the program encourages further emigration of those who believe that TPS is their ticket to permanent residence in the U.S. Even as President Bush is offering TPS to Salvadorans because of the earthquakes, their countrymen and other Central Americans who received TPS under his father's administration have never been asked to go home.

    The money that will be spent to administer yet another sham TPS program would be better spent directly aiding those whose lives have been devastated by the natural disasters in El Salvador. In addition to the unspecified and off-budget cost of administering a program that is estimated to encompass at least 150,000 people, there will be enormous expenditures on social services, such as education, health care and the like to assist Salvadorans who come here. That money will do nothing to rebuild El Salvador or create economic opportunity for those who remain behind.

    TPS has proven to be a program that appears superficially to be generous and compassionate, but, in practice, consistently fails to live up to those lofty goals. In the end, it rewards people who came to the U.S. illegally before any disaster occurred, it diverts assistance away from those whose lives were affected by a catastrophe, and abuses the generosity of the American people. It is time for the new administration to re-evaluate our policies for responding to crises in other countries, and devise a plan for ensuring that the U.S. can play a positive role in helping people and nations through difficult times.

    Another group of people that want "TPS"

    Peru: 500 Thousand Undocumented Peruvians in U.S. could Benefit from TPS


    (LIP-ir) -- President of Peru's APRA Parliamentary Cell (CPA), Luis Negreiros Criado, has requested that the Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Antonio Garc*a Belaunde, begin the necessary paperwork to request that undocumented Peruvians in the United States be granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

    The U.S. grants the permit known as the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to countries that have suffered natural disasters or civil wars. The Temporary Protected Status is valid for one year and can be renewed.

    This permit was granted to undocumented immigrants in the U.S. from El Salvador when the earthquake of 2001 struck the country and to Nicaragua when hurricane Mitch devastated parts of the country.

    "We are aware that activists in the Peruvian community of Miami, represented by the Peruvian American Political Organization, are attempting to reach a fair agreement that will allow our countrymen to live and work in the United States legally, because of humanitarian reasons, as well as continue supporting their families in their native countries," stated Negreiros.

    Negreiros declared that this would help thousands of Peruvians living in the U.S., especially those that are supporting family members in the affected regions. It is estimated that 500 thousand undocumented Peruvians could take advantage of the TPS, if it were granted.
