TPS provides temporary legal status in the United States to citizens of other countries where natural disasters or civil wars have made it too unsafe for them to return.
"The hurricane that struck Central America in 1998 is not the reason why citizens of those countries still enjoy TPS in 2017". Trump's cruel decision also underscores the fight to pass the American Promise Act, introduced by Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY).
Guisell Martinez Flores, a TPS holder from Honduras who has worked as a janitor in Los Angeles, California for more than 18 years, said the announcement does not constitute good news.
The irresponsible decision to end the TPS for Nicaraguans will tear families apart and disrupt the lives of these working individuals, the president of the Congress Hispanic Legislative Group, Michelle Lujan said on the measure announced yesterday.
Latino advocates and legislators from both parties criticized the Trump administration's announcement that it would terminate a program that allows about 3,000 Nicaraguans to stay and work in the US legally as well as delay the decision on whether to extend the program to recipients from Honduras.
But supporters of the program say Nicaraguan TPS holders have deep roots in the community and have been in the country for decades.
Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Elaine Duke will terminate the TPS designation for Nicaragua "with a delayed effective date of 12 months to allow for an orderly transition before the designation terminates on January 5, 2019", according to a press release sent on Monday night. "If Congress doesn't act, they will be complicit in the morally repulsive mass expulsion of American families who have lived in this country for almost two decades". Haiti received its initial TPS designation in 2010 after an natural disaster left 1.5 million people homeless and injured 300,000 people.
"I am deeply pained by and strongly disagree with the decision to phase out the Temporary Protected Status for Nicaraguan nationals living in the United States", said Díaz-Balart.
DHS has called on Congress to enact a permanent solution to resolve the seemingly imminent elimination of TPS in the memo and give options to the thousands of immigrations that are losing or may eventually lose these protections. Haitians affected by the decision number 46,000. They also made clear that the DHS would not specifically target TPS holders who become undocumented once their status expires, but that they would still "prioritize criminal aliens".
"Every 16 hours there is a woman killed in Honduras", said Oscar Chacón from the Alianza Américas, stating the country remains one of the most risky places in the world. It's typically renewed every 18 months. As a mother of a 17-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter, she said she would be forced to leave and take her two children with her.
"I have never been so uneasy as I am now", Flores told Al Jazeera. "I'm here to work and contribute to this economy". "These are people who are working, who are paying their taxes, and we hope that when the time comes when they follow this process in the USA, that we will have the opportunity to have a renewal of the Temporary Protection Status or some way to have our countrymen continue to live in this country".
