IT'S ABOUT TIME: Trump Administration to Revoke Temporary Protected Status for Hondurans

... And while we're on this topic President Trump ... WHAT ABOUT all those Honduran flag wavers that arrived by caravan seeking asylum, WHEN DO THEY GET THE BOOT?
The Trump administration announced Friday that it will discontinue temporary protected status for tens of thousands of Hondurans who have been living in the U.S. since a hurricane ravaged their homeland in 1999. The move is the latest in a string of such revocations, which expose previously protected immigrants to deportation, by the administration.
Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a Friday statement that a government review found conditions in Honduras have improved to an extent that temporary protected status is no longer warranted.
Honduran immigrants relying on temporary protected status, of which there are roughly 86,000, will have until January 2020 to return to their home country or work out a legal means of remaining in the U.S.
Marlon Tabora Munoz, Honduras’ ambassador to the United States, said it’s not fair to ask those immigrants to return home after so many years.

Nope nope nope.

There are 500,000 people with TPS in this country. They have built their lives here, many for decades. They are responsible and hardworking, with families.

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. How dumb and cruel is it to kick them out? I cannot fathom such hatred.
