Trump Eliminates TPS Protections for Nicaraguan Migrants

Trump ends protected residency for thousands living in U.S. legally from Nicaragua

DHS has called on Congress to enact a permanent solution to resolve the seemingly imminent elimination of TPS in the memo and give options to the thousands of immigrations that are losing or may eventually lose these protections. "It is time for Congress to act and to do so before the end of the year", stated Dr. Delgado.

Immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) are allowed to live and work in the United States if it is determined that they are unable to safely return to their home country because of an environmental disaster, armed conflict, or other extraordinary conditions.

Local advocate Francisco Portillo, president of the Honduran group Francisco Morazán, said immigration organizations will keep fighting to win legalization for Honduran TPS holders.

A supporter amongst a coalition of community leaders and immigrant advocates demonstrate outside US immigration offices, calling on federal authorities to designate Ecuador for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for its nationals in the aftermath of last April's 7.8 magnitude natural disaster, Wednesday June 1, 2016, in NY. "DHS' action destroys the emotional security and compromises the mental health of thousands of US citizen children with a lifetime of consequences for their well-being", concluded Dr. Delgado.

"Every 16 hours there is a woman killed in Honduras", said Oscar Chacón from the Alianza Américas, stating the country remains one of the most risky places in the world. DHS can renew the program for up to 18 months at a time. "I'm not taking my family to a risky zone".

The status had been granted to some Nicaraguans who had fled their homeland after the devastation caused by Hurricane Mitch in 1998.

Salvadorans and Haitians' fates are in limbo as the Department of Homeland Security decides what to do with those residents whose status expires in early January. "People have been here for 25 years", Shannon said, "and for 25 years they have been working with a legal temporary visa. Abuse of TPS by guests - most of whom should not have been here in the first place - and foreign governments that value remittances sent home by their citizens more than they value the citizens themselves, should never be rewarded".

"I am deeply pained by and strongly disagree with the decision to phase out the Temporary Protected Status for Nicaraguan nationals living in the United States", said Díaz-Balart. Under advanced parole, TPS holders that entered the country unlawfully but married US citizens can go overseas and return to the country and be inspected by immigration officials and gain the option to adjust their status.

As ThinkProgress previously reported, some Haitian parents are weighing the costs of leaving their children here in the United States if they have to return.

"They think we are criminals, and the uncertainty is just so overwhelming".
