Trump Administration Halts Deportation of Possibly 300,000 Aliens

Hundreds of thousands of migrants have been here for more than a decade under a program that gave them temporary legal status, but is a flat-out sham.

Organized demonstrations like this one have happened wherever enclaves of certain ethnic groups have settled.


Temporary Protected Status protects those who were already in the country from about ten countries when something bad happened in their home country and that country claims it can’t take them back.  In order to get TPS status the migrant had to have been in the US already through some other means, including through illegal activities like visa overstays.

The protection was supposed to last no more than two years!

In reality the impoverished country from which they came doesn’t want them back because some are crooks and criminals, but others, those working and/or collecting benefits of some sort, send millions ‘home’ in the form of remittances.

Dollars that would go to fueling our economy now go to prop-up the economies of the third world.

Trump initially wanted to stop it, but the extensive legal network of Open Borders Inc. filed lawsuits and have thus caused the government to back down.

Hundreds of thousands (you know they have drivers licenses and are likely voting) will get to stay until about two weeks before the President is sworn in in January 2021.

Here is the depressing news at the Washington Examiner:

DHS to extend deportation protection program for citizens of six countries into 2021

The Trump administration is extending a program that allows illegal immigrants from six specific countries to obtain legal protection from deportation due to their home country’s inability to take back its own citizens.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, announced Friday it will continue granting protections under the Temporary Protected Status program for people from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan through Jan. 4, 2021. USCIS will publish a 27-page notice in the Federal Register detailing the plan on Monday.

The move could affect an estimated 300,000 in the U.S., according to a Congressional Research Service March estimate.

The move comes weeks after a federal judge ordered a temporary stop to the winding down of the six programs. DHS extended TPS due to the unresolved litigation over related cases.

Under TPS, those from certain countries who were in the U.S. illegally at the time of a natural disaster, war, famine, or similar situation, can apply for permission to legally remain at work in the country for two-year terms until their home country says it is stable for people to return.

Many of these countries had had their programs renewed many times, some for up to 15 years. Some recipients have been in the United States for 20 years under the program. [They put down roots and then scream how unfair America is for wanting them to go home!—ed]


Former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen also extended protections for recipients from Syria, South Sudan, and Yemen. Citizens from 10 countries are TPS recipients as of Friday.

I have a few posts on TPS here at ‘Frauds and Crooks,’ but more here at RRW.

Just another reminder, I am writing almost daily again at Refugee Resettlement Watch because news is coming fast and furious these days on the US Refugee Admissions Program.

TPS recipients are not refugees!

  1. At least in the case of El Salvador, but probably with all of these countries, the President extended the TPS in exchange for help to stop the caravans.

    One thing I learned in my many years of working in immigration law enforcement, is that America is very good at letting people in and extremely poor in getting rid of them.

    Last I heard, after San Salvador, the largest concentration of El Salvadorians was in Washington, DC.

    The MS-13 has had a strong presence in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of DC since the early 1990s. They started out dealing in cocaine (including crack), then by the late 1990s they were dealing heroin they were getting from illegal alien Dominicans out of Philadelphia.

    I don’t have current numbers, but back in the 90s the largest number of murder suspects who had absconded were El Salvadorians.

    1. My first thought was that it was a deal on the caravans. I have no confidence that the other side will play fair and not doublecross the Donald. We will keep the Salvadorans and get the caravans again at some point!

      1. There are no absolute cure for illegal immigration, they will always be at our gates. We have to be continuously on guard both at the border and the interior of America. Unfortunately the open borders types are growing in unprecedented numbers, so we have the enemy within our population. Many of them are our elected officials.

        I seriously doubt the smugglers would be so successful, if they didn’t have American elected officials on their payroll.

  2. It means, in fact, that the USA is ruled not by any helpless “We the People”, but by the mighty “legal network of Open Borders”. Heil Soros!

    1. The TPS program is loved by alien smugglers, they use as a recruitment tool. Just as soon as country is designated for TPS, the smuggles flock there and tell the people they will get them work authorization and social security accounts in America, all they have to do is pay a smuggling fee.

      So probably most of the TPS recipients are smuggled aliens who got a few steps past the border without being apprehended, then straight to the USCIS office for their new U.S. Government issued ID, work authorization, and social security accounts. And they can pick just about any date of birth and name they like.

      So if I was wanted for murder in El Salvador, I’d just go to America and get myself a whole new identity/nationality.
