Trump administration to send 57,000 Hondurans in the US back home


If you can’t follow our laws and obtain legal status then, Adios!

From Sun Sentinel: The Trump administration said Friday that it is ending special immigration protections for about 57,000 Hondurans, adding them to hundreds of thousands of immigrants from other countries battered by violence and natural disasters who are losing permission to be in the United States.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security‘s widely anticipated decision not to renew temporary protected status for Hondurans means an estimated 428,000 people from several countries face rolling deadlines beginning late this year to leave or obtain legal residency in other ways.

Hondurans will have until Jan. 5, 2020, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said.

President Donald Trump — who wants to curtail legal immigration and has been cracking down broadly on illegal immigration — and his supporters note that the protections were never meant to be permanent.

Immigrant advocates decried the move and contend that ending the status will drive people underground who have been establishing roots in the U.S. for years or decades, including having American-born children.

For Hondurans, the program known as TPS has been in place since 1999 after Hurricane Mitch devastated in the Central American nation the year before. The administration says conditions in Honduras have improved, while advocates argue that it still hasn’t fully recovered from the hurricane and is now plagued by rampant violence (Gee, I wonder why?).

Trump, his opponents argue, is effectively adding tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people to the ranks of those in the U.S. without legal status.

Marta Connor, a 50-year-old union organizer in Southern California who has lived in the U.S. for decades and has three American-born children, said before the announcement that she wasn’t leaving, regardless of the administration’s policies.

“One thing I can tell you is I am not going to Honduras,” she said, noting that many of the asylum-seeking migrants in a caravan that recently reached the U.S.-Mexico border are from Honduras. “If they are coming, why am I going over there?”

“There is no way I will go back,” Connor said.

Around 437,000 immigrants hailing from 10 countries have had temporary protected status, a designation created in 1990 to allow people from countries affected by natural disasters like earthquakes or man-made disasters like war to have a short-term safe haven. Only a few thousand still have that status.

Those with it have generally been able to work and with permission, travel outside the U.S. and return.

Countries are added to the list as circumstances warrant, with renewals coming usually around every 18 months. While some countries have been taken off the list, others have stayed on it for extended periods, which critics say turns the program into default amnesty.

Under Trump, the Department of Homeland Security has terminated the program for Sudan, Nicaragua, Nepal, Haiti, and notably El Salvador, which accounted for more holders of the special status than any other nation.

They have been given deadlines to leave or gain legal status if possible, starting in November for Sudan and throughout 2019 for the other countries. Several groups are suing to stay in the U.S.

  1. It sounds like a nice first step.

  2. Agreed. Great first step. Now let’s get the second, third, fourth, etc. steps in place with each step being bigger than the one before. These people need to stay in their own country and fight it out with what they do not like. All they do is bring their problems with them. America maybe a melting pot but somewhere along the way the melting stopped and the pot has become full of those who either live off every one else or refuse to melt to blend in. Enough is enough.

    If they have been here for years then they have already gone under ground. And having children here in the U.S. does not make the children any more legal than if they just snuck across the border.

    • It’s called “anchor babies”. Until Congress makes that illegal, they are legal.

        anchor babies have never been legal citizens. It stems from a totally intentional misrepresentation of the 14th amendment.

        If birth on U.S. soil alone, is all that was necessary, that would be all the 14th amendment would have to say. Instead it say born in the U.S., and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, which are two distinct requirement.

        Being on U.S. soil only make one subject to the laws of this nation, but the subject of the amendment is the jurisdiction of citizenship which does not morph from that of the parents simply because of place of birth. Change of citizenship can only be accomplished through ‘naturalization’. I can’t imagine any nation allowing another nation to claim as possessions their citizens in such circumstance, even though it can evolve into legitimate issue of loyalty.

        I realize this “anchor baby” nonsense has been accepted policy by our government, and the majority of people have been suckered in to accepting it as truth, but a simple read of the congressional debates of the ratification of the 14th amendment would reveal this big lie for what it is.

  8. The only thing that I can see is that one cannot have temporary status forever at the same time navigating the immigration system will get the person frustrated and the process is tedious


  9. For those who have been here for long durations should have worked on being legal. This is their mess. USA kept looking the other way. Are obama’s aunt still here? They have been told many times over the years to leave. Obama has other relatives illegally here and told to leave. These people had years to become legal. Good-bye!!!!!

    It doesn’t make sense – these people are saying it is dangerous in Honduros while the travel magazines are telling people to move there because of the wonderful cheap retirement communities.

    Whose lying? You can’t have it both ways.

  11. “the program known as TPS has been in place since 1999 after Hurricane Mitch devastated in the Central American nation the year before.”

    Since when are hurricanes one of the conditions that make people “refugees”? And even if they do, once the hurricane had subsided, the danger passed, which means those TEMPORARY “refugees” should be returned to their country. No reason why they should be allowed to stay in the U.S. — for decades.

  12. The Hondurian removals would certainly be a good thing, but this report below about more general “immigration” matters seems to dispute that enforcement is getting better. Note, too, at the bottom of the page that “immigrants”, and more likely those Globalists who are the ones actually arranging for the importations of them, seem to be working it so that our national American system of immigration is intentionally overwhelmed.

    “US-Mexico Border Invaders “Back to Obama-Levels” with 230% Increase”

    “The number of nonwhite invaders seeking to force their way into America to parasite off the white-created society is back to Obama-era levels with a 230 percent in April 2018 compared to April 2017—and more than 159 fakers from the “migrant caravan” have now applied for “asylum” from their self-created disaster zones in Central America.

    According to statistics released by the US Customs and Border Protection, 38,234 nonwhites were apprehended trying to break their way into America in April over the Southwest Border.

    At the same time, CBP Officers arrested a further 12,690 more would-be invaders who tried to come through the official ports of entry without permission.

    The newspaper quoted Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, which represents border agents, as saying that the reason for the upsurge is a realization among the invaders that the still “de facto “catch-and-release” policy” which means that most of the invaders are “quickly put back out on the streets, with the hope that they’ll return to be deported later.”

    “The reason is obvious: If you can cross the border illegally without any consequence, why not? As long as the catch-and-release policy-program exists, large numbers of people are going to cross the border illegally,” Judd continued.

    Illegal immigrant children traveling alone, and families traveling together, are a particular target for the smugglers, who assure the migrants they can win a foothold in the U.S. Officials say it’s so bad that some illegal immigrants have taken to kidnapping or ‘borrowing’ children en route to the U.S. so they can pose as a family and get more lenient treatment.

    Children and families are two groups that particularly benefit from catch-and-release, thanks to court rulings that have set strict limits on how long children can be held in detention. Releasing them virtually guarantees they don’t show up for their deportations.

    “But they said a lack of detention bed space and demands set by federal courts still force catch-and-release for many illegal immigrants.”

    In other words, the nonwhites are overwhelming the CBP resources with numbers—knowing that the authorities will be forced to release them instead of simply throwing them back across the border, which would be the policy of any sensible nation.”

    • You might notice from my link (above) that all of the Hondurans were allowed into the country despite much publicity otherwise. In addition, the reasons given for asylum applications don’t pass the smell test. “Extreme poverty” certainly isn’t an asylum issue. Many claimed they were homosexuals.

      These people will join the multitude already here, thus insuring Demonrat rule for California. This is wrong on so many levels that I don’t want to go any farther. Obviously, they aren’t going to do anything about this.

  13. My first encounter with an illegal was when I was in college and my future husband and I became acquainted with/friends with a foreign student from the Phillipines who planned to leave his schooling, & openly told us that his student visa would then expire, but he ws simply going to over-stay in the US…and if he thought he ws going to be caught, he’d go to Canada, where his expired-visa/illegal, to all of North America, sister was residing after doing the same illegal thing…, my friends, this happened in the 1970’s….this crap has been going on for 45 years to a HUGE degree from my own experience. It does not ONLY involve our country, but at least from this example, includes all of the Americas. The OBAMA hope of banishing our borders in favor of “open borders” has been practiced for years and years by each country involved—from the tip of So. America to the tip of North America… was only energized/”encoded in law by executive orders” by the Obama Administration. This is like a horse that got out of the barn……..paired with this past administration insults to our borders, along with “Never Trumper” resistants……there might well be NO WAY BACK to our sovereignty.

  14. And I hope more to go, not much room for us less for these immigrants that contribute NOTHING but illnesses, diseases, plagues, and are a BURDEN TO US TAXPAYERS. My parents came here in their 50s and worked till their last breath and in no way were a burden to the society.

  15. There are already laws on the books. The laws are not being enforced for,
    “BRINGING IN AND HARBORING CERTAIN ALIENS”. Americans need to insist upon enforcement – although they should not have to at all. Government is not doing it’s job, and those in government, and those behind them in the shadows, want more and more alien and non-White people to be imported. They purposefully avoid applying the laws.

    Sec. 274. [8 U.S.C. 1324]

    (a) Criminal Penalties.-

    (B) A person who violates subparagraph (A) shall, for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs-

    (i) in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(i) or (v)(I) 2/ or in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(ii), (iii), or (iv) in which the offense was done for the purpose of commercial advantage or private financial gain, 3/ be fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both;

    (iii) in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(i), (ii), (iii), (iv), or (v) 5/ during and in relation to which the person causes serious bodily injury (as defined in section 1365 of title 18, United States Code) to, or places in jeopardy the life of, any person, be fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both; and

    iv) in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(i), (ii), (iii), (iv), or (v) resulting in the death of any person, be punished by death or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, fined under title 18, United States Code, or both.

  16. From the last figures I saw they cost us more than 3 billion a year where do I sign up I mean 3 billion a yr. But they think they deserve it when you see them protest it’s like give it to me YOU owe me. Then stick up the middle finger at you or stomp on the American Flag. Sorry no love lost here and if you break the law go to jail not get a pass because you’re a vote for some left leaning democrap in power.
