Welcome to America Where Temporary Means Permanent

In line with its immigration enforcement agenda, the Trump administration recently announced that it is ending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Nicaraguan nationals. It has also signaled that it will consider ending TPS for Haitian, Honduran, and Salvadoran nationals.
TPS is a form of short-term protection granted to foreign nationals who are unable to return home due to a natural disaster, civil unrest, or violence affecting their native country. Enacted by Congress in 1990, the program is open to legal, as well as illegal, aliens. As the name implies, Congress represented the program as a way to provide provisional assistance to foreigners in dire straits, who would be sent home when the situation in their home country improved.
In reality, TPS has proven to be anything but temporary. At present, TPS has been granted to approximately 400,000 individuals from at least ten countries. Many of those individuals were given protection in the late 1990s or early 2000s. Yet they are still in the United States today with TPS – despite the fact that the circumstances which allegedly prevented them from going home are long over.
The open borders lobby has been predictably incensed at President Trump’s willingness to implement our immigration laws, as written. And they have advanced the same tired arguments in defense of foreign nationals in the United States on borrowed time: “These folks have been here for years, how can we send them home?” To hear the politically correct, multi-cultural elite talk, the only requirement for immigrating to the United States is to show up and grace us with your presence – whether we invited you or not.
