Federal Report: Nearly 55K Illegal Aliens Given ‘Protection’ Under Trump

The Associated Press
Almost 55,000 illegal aliens were granted de facto amnesty under the Temporary Protected Status classification by President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security in the first three months of 2017.
In total, 54,944 illegal aliens either had their Temporary Protected Status (TPS) renewed by the administration or are new recipients of the classification, which has been derided by immigration hawks for being an indirect amnesty program.
Under Temporary Protected Status, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are allowed to remain in the U.S. for up to 18 months, as Breitbart Texas reported. After their protected status has expired, they can re-apply to have the classification renewed.
Although the number of illegal aliens receiving protected status remains high, the Trump Administration did lower the number, which encompasses January through March 2017, from where the Obama Administration had left it.

55,000 out of 12 million. Small potatoes.
