Days After Election, Joe Biden Extends ‘Temporary’ Amnesty to 305K Foreign Nationals in U.S.:
President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending temporary amnesty status to hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals from a variety of countries living in the United States who would otherwise be eligible for deportation.
Just a few days after Tuesday’s midterm elections, Biden’s DHS filed an automatic extension in the federal register that will allow more than 305,000 foreign nationals from El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan to remain in the U.S. and hold American jobs.
The bulk, about 194,000, are nationals from El Salvador.
Extensions of TPS have long been followed by surges at the southern border, particularly of border crossers arriving under the false premise that they may be eligible for the protected status if they get into the U.S.
In May 2021, for instance, Biden rewarded TPS to more than 100,000 Haitians living in the U.S. who would have otherwise been eligible for deportation. Since then, DHS has seen a significant spike in tens of thousands of Haitian border crossers arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border on a monthly basis. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden administration extends TPS for Haiti and five other countries through June 2024:
The Biden administration will extend immigration protections for some Haitians and nationals from five other countries for another 18 months, a development that comes as economic, political and social instability rocks Haiti.
Eligible nationals from Haiti and El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Sudan and Nepal living in the United States will be able to keep their Temporary Protected Status-related documents until at least June 30, 2024. The program shields people from countries in turmoil who are living in the United States from deportation and allows them to legally work.
The Department of Homeland Security “is well aware of the importance of Temporary Protected Status in providing stability to people’s lives,” said an agency spokesman in a statement following the filing of a federal register notice that announced the extension on Thursday evening, and which is scheduled to be published on Nov. 16.
U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Services said in a congressional report that as of the end of 2021 there were about 241,700 TPS holders from El Salvador, followed by over 76,000 from Honduras and over 53,000 from Haiti. Nicaragua had 4,250 beneficiaries.
The document from Citizenship and Immigration Services says the TPS extension complies with federal court orders in ongoing litigation. Among them is Ramos v. Nielsen, a case in which TPS participants from Haiti, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Sudan contested the Trump-era termination of the program for their home countries. --->READ MORE HERE
