End to ‘temporary’ status for US migrants feared under Trump

Nice headline, huh?


Looking into the 'Temporary Protected Status' that our DC clowns set up to get a hint at what temporary really means to a politician. 

FYI -The Secretary of Homeland Security may designate a foreign country for TPS due to 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.  

TPS is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status 


WASHINGTON — Nancy Vasquez left the turmoil in her native El Salvador behind and moved to the U.S., where she was able to support her family, buy a house and start a food-truck business catering to workers on the outskirts of Washington thanks to a “temporary” residency permit that has lasted for nearly 20 years.


Vasquez, a 47-year-old who originally came to the U.S. on a tourist visa in 1999 and stayed when she got TPS.  


Like so many, Ms. Vasquez, temporary protected status has run out.


Of course, the problem of flooding our society with these "temporary" people who would not normally qualify for immigration status runs much deeper than the few who came here to work.  The Department of Homeland Security’s May 22 made the decision to grant a six-month extension of “temporary protected status” for nearly 60,000 Haitians.  


  Citizens of  El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua now make up 80 percent of the 435,000 people from 10 nations with TPS. Their status has been renewed every 18 months as other countries, including Rwanda, Kuwait, and Lebanon, have come and gone from the list.


Trump's greatest blow to the socialist welfare state might be the damage he is doing to the immigration and vote buying mechanism of the Left.  The financial benefit of reducing the welfare costs of aliens on our economy will be interesting to see in the future.

    “feared”? So Leftists are “afraid” of President Trump’s ban on “temporary status”? Hmmm, one minute the Leftists are claiming that President Trump is a child and the next moment they claim to “fear” him. I’ve never been afraid of a child, is “fear” the reason that they want to slaughter unborn babies?
