TPS, also known as “Temporary Protected Status,” is for refugees from countries where it would not be safe to send them home. But the State Department has now cleared several countries they now consider safe, which will result in the deportation of a total of 300,000 refugees. The first batch of 60,000 are being prepared now and the balance will be announced by January.
The deportations will be a boon for their home countries. Democrats and companies seeking cheap labor that allows them to ignore American workers and pad their bottom line will no doubt be hardest hit. Democrats don’t want Americans to be gainfully employed.
We know this because most of their policies kill jobs for Americans. Eight years of Obama prove that. Ironically, the alleged racist Donald Trump has lowered the unemployment rates of black Americans to their lowest levels since before the Obama administration. Obama gave millions of work permits to illegal aliens through DAPA, DACA and several other illegal immigration plans.
The threatened loss of TPS status for 300,000 diverse refugees will further pressure reluctant Democrats to bargain with President Donald Trump, who has already announced the end of the DACA program for 690,000 current beneficiaries. Trump has repeatedly said he expects the Democrats to agree to halt chain migration and the visa lottery program as part of any negotiations to legalize 690,000 current DACA beneficiaries.
On Tuesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sent a letter to acting DHS secretary Elaine Duke to inform her that conditions in Central America and Haiti that had been used to justify the protection no longer necessitate a reprieve for the migrants, some of whom have been allowed to live and work in the United States for 20 years under a program known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Tillerson’s assessment, required by law, has not been made public, but its recommendations were confirmed by several administration officials familiar with its contents. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

The Department of Homeland Security has a Monday deadline to announce whether it will extend the Temporary Protected Status for almost 60,000 Hondurans and roughly 2,500 Nicaraguans, whose temporary stays were repeatedly and routinely extended by prior administrations. “It is fair to say that this administration is interpreting the law, exactly as it is, which the previous one did not,” an administration official told the Washington Post.
The Hondurans were permitted to remain in the United States in 1999 after Hurricane Mitch hit the country.
The Nicaraguans also were given TPS status in 1999 because of Hurricane Mitch.
By the end of November, DHS must decide whether to extend TPS for 50,000 Haitians. They were given TPS because of a huge earthquake that killed 200,000 in 2010.
In early January, the DHS must also decide whether to extend TPS status for 200,000 people from El Salvador, who were permitted to stay in 2001 after their country was hit by earthquakes.
In the 2016 election, two issues helped propel Trump to victory — Supreme Court appointments and immigration. The more Democrats fight for unlimited immigration, the more alienated middle class Democratic voters will reject them.
