200,000 Salvadorans, 2,500 Nicaraguans, 45,000 Haitians, 9,000 Nepalese and now 50,000 Hondurans, are the latest victims of the Trump Administration's campaign against legal immigration.

"This is another shortsighted decision by the Administration, and while I'm extremely disappointed, I've long said Congress has a responsibility to step up and put an end to the anxiety and uncertainty young immigrants brought to our country as children and those contributing to our country under the TPS program face because of these short-term Executive mandates", he said. The 18-month timeline to end the program would allow "individuals with TPS to arrange for their departure or to seek an alternative lawful immigration", the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement.

Although meant to be temporary, 18 months, previous administrations have continually extended the protection each year for various groups of people, so that many beneficiaries have since established roots and raised families in the U.S. Organizers of one of the caravans that recently arrived at the border included more Hondurans than in the past, according to organizers.

Some Democratic lawmakers decried the decision and said Congress should act to pass legislation that would allow long-time TPS holders to remain in the United States. Additionally, Honduran TPS holders will have to make an impossible decision of whether or not to separate from their more than 53,500 US -citizen children or bring them to a country they've never known where they would face increased risk of violence. The Center for American Progress had estimated the USA would lose $164B in GDP over 10 Years if TPS holders from El Salvador, Honduras, and Haiti were removed from the labor force. They've been given deadlines starting in November for Sudan and throughout 2019 for the other countries to leave, or if possible, gain legal status.

Thousands protest against Macron in Paris and Toulouse
Police fired tear gas on troublemakers on the margins of the largely festive protest Saturday, and eight people were arrested. The event began with a mass picnic, and smaller rallies took place in the southern cities of Toulouse and Bordeaux.


According to the government's argument, the secretary of national security, Kirstjen Nielsen, "has cautiously considered" the current conditions of Honduras, determining that the country has recovered enough from the disaster caused by Hurricane Mitch in 1999, concluding that citizens would no longer need to stay in the United States. Decisions are upcoming for South Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen, which cover fewer than 1,700 people.

Overall the country is worse off than it was almost two decades ago post-hurricane, said Michael Allison, a political scientist specializing in Central America at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania.

Canadian Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said Hondurans had until 2020 to decide what to do, meaning it was unlikely people would rush north.

El Salvador actually had TPS twice, the first time in the early 1990s until December 1994. Lopez says, the ending of TPS for Hondurans would be a disaster. Cecilia Menjivar, professor in the sociology department at the University of Kansas, said while exact numbers are unknown, it's clear many stayed in the country when TPS was terminated.
