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.
