Biden Just Gave Legal Status to Hundreds of Thousands of Illegal Immigrants; DHS Grants Deportation Amnesty to 323,000 Venezuelans, and related stories

Biden Just Gave Legal Status to Hundreds of Thousands of Illegal Immigrants:
More than 300,000 illegal immigrants are being protected by the Biden administration.
The administration announced Monday that it is granting what is known as Temporary Protected Status to illegal immigrants from Venezuela, according to a teleconference transcript released by the White House.
Temporary Protected Status will allow those who register with the federal government to legally remain in the country through September 2022. Administration officials who briefed the media about the policy said that TPS could be renewed, but no decision about that has been made.
Officials briefing the media estimated that around 320,000 illegal immigrants would be covered by the Biden administration action.
A Department of Homeland Security release on the DHS website said TPS was granted “due to extraordinary and temporary conditions in Venezuela that prevent nationals from returning safely, including a complex humanitarian crisis marked by widespread hunger and malnutrition, a growing influence and presence of non-state armed groups, repression, and a crumbling infrastructure.” --->READ MORE HERE

DHS grants deportation amnesty to 323,000 Venezuelans:
Homeland Security announced a deportation amnesty Monday for hundreds of thousands of migrants from Venezuela because of ongoing political unrest in the South American country, moving to cement a policy President Trump had put in place in his last days in office.
Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said he is extending Temporary Protected Status to Venezuelans already in the U.S. but with less than permanent status — including illegal immigrants. TPS gives them permission to live and work here without fear of being ousted.
The move has both immigration and foreign policy implications, serving as a jab at Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro as well as a grant of protection for ordinary Venezuelans who have managed to make it out of the country and reach the U.S. --->READ MORE HERE
