TPS under attack

Scribe: N. Tru Bass





Officials close to the White House have announced the end of a humanitarian program that has temporary protected Salvadorans who who have worked and live in the United States. Just weeks ago more than 45,000 Haitians have been denied protections. Hondurans and Nicaraguans are expected to be next up.

El Salvador, employees and advocates have all chimed in to speak to the importance of extending the program that has been extended since 2001. California, Virginia and along with other states will be impacted by the decision to undermine a successful federal program. One nationally respected news organization quoted on of the Salvadorans who would be challenged by the renege said, “We had hope that if we worked hard, paid our taxes and didn’t get in trouble we would be allowed to stay.”

This is just another salvo in the attack against immigrants, the most notable being the catholic group called the Dreamers who in March fell under the same attack. The White House undermined their status by snatching out from under them the safety net of the US being the only familiar home they know. Nearly 1 million people were effected by that decision. Many American believe its simply a blowhard president stunting.

The Temporary Protected Status program is a humanitarian program that announce the Haitian country de-possession with a delayed date of 22 July 2019.

TPS was developed as part of the Immigration Act of 1990, in which congress established a precedure allowing the Attorney General to offer protections to immigrants who were not able to sefely return to their home country due to armed conflict, environmental disaster or other extraordinary temporary condition.
