Video Immigration Brief: Temporary Protected Status


Benefits remain long after the emergency disappears, according to the Center for Immigration Studies

WASHINGTON, Nov. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Trump Administration has announced the end of Temporary Protected Status for illegal immigrant Nicaraguans, originally granted in 1999, and postponed a decision for the larger population of Hondurans who received status at the same time. Decisions on renewing or terminating TPS for Salvadorans and Haitians are expected soon.

Will the administration just keep renewing this "temporary" status, as its predecessors repeatedly did? Will Congress heed the advice of DHS "to enact a permanent solution for this inherently temporary program"? A new Immigration Brief video by former immigration judge Andrew Arthur briefly lays out some of the issues.
