NOT GOOD: Trump DHS Continues Yet Another Amnesty

Once again, the fatal mistakes of President Trump’s personnel choices have sabotaged his agenda. This time, Elaine Duke, the acting DHS secretary and John Kelly acolyte, rebuffed efforts from the White House and even the State Department to discontinue a temporary amnesty program. Late Monday evening, she announced yet another six-month continuation of the Temporary Protected Status program for 57,000 Hondurans, while opting to discontinue the program for Nicaragua, clearly because it only applied to 2,500 people.
America has become a dumping ground for the world’s problems, and the politicians have completely disregarded to need to protect American citizens and our sovereignty. Now the Trump administration, after signaling its intent to discontinue the program, has once again blinked and bowed to the demands of the open-borders lobby.

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is designed to temporarily offer safe harbor for foreign nationals whose lives have been disrupted by natural disasters. Yet in recent years, TPS has become a de facto permanent amnesty program for several Latin American countries to offload their poverty on our shores long after the disasters have been forgotten (along with millions of American taxpayer dollars used to rebuild their infrastructure at home). The last few presidents have been beholden to open-border lobbies and the demands of these countries, such as Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, and Haiti. They have endlessly extended some of these programs for as long as 20 years.
The Trump administration continued these programs for the first months of the administration and is now facing several renewal deadlines. Despite Secretary of State Rex Tillerson (yes, even him!) sending a letter to the DHS recommending the termination of the program, Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke announced that the DHS would continue the protected status for Honduras. She heard the endless cries from the Chamber of Commerce and the Soros-funded immigration groups about our “humanitarian obligations.” But once this issue gains more notoriety among the public, people will see that DACA was just the top of the iceberg. Latin American countries are taking advantage of American taxpayers on numerous fronts, and once we agree to one amnesty, there will be millions of others trying to piggyback on it.
