U.S. to end protection status for Nicaraguan in 2019

Nicaraguan Immigrants To Lose Temporary Protected Status In The US A plea against deportation

Immigration advocates decried a Department of Homeland Security decision to end Temporary Protected Status for 2,500 Nicaraguans who have been living in the United States for almost 20 years. In its wake, the USA granted Nicaraguans and Hondurans a Temporary Protected Status (TPS), meaning they were sheltered from deportation and allowed to get things like jobs and insurance.

Temporary Protected Status is a special immigration status for people from a foreign country where the US determines that conditions in that home country prevent those people from returning safely or where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.

McGrorty, executive director of Catholic Legal Services in the Archdiocese of Miami, said US law is meant to be implemented "with a certain degree of kindness and compassion", and that sending people to countries that are ill-prepared to welcome them would do far more harm than good.

On Monday, DHS determined that Nicaraguan TPS holders can now return home and said that the Nicaraguan government will adequately handle their return.

No decision has yet been made about El Salvador or Haiti.

Officials said Monday that Nicaraguans will only get one more year, until January 2019.

Since the 1990s, the DHS has granted TPS designation to individuals from 10 countries fleeing violence, natural disasters, or conditions that prevent them from being able to go back to their home countries. It's typically renewed every 18 months.

Supporters of TPS slammed the administration's decisions.

Hondurans were also granted TPS in 1999 after Hurricane Mitch. "And in fact by not renewing the Temporary Protected Status. they have actually made matters worse", Rodriguez said. Instead, they're getting a six-month extension, with a decision at a later date. The renewals are a source of some controversy in the U.S. Some critics feel the benefits have basically become permanent, because some nationals from Honduras and Nicaragua have held the status for as long as 20 years.

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.

There are bipartisan legislative options now before Congress to protect TPS families.

"I have never been so uneasy as I am now", Flores told Al Jazeera.

Guisell Martinez Flores, a TPS holder from Honduras who has worked as a janitor in Los Angeles, California for more than 18 years, said the announcement does not constitute good news.

The Trump administration is now calling on Congress to legislate a "permanent solution" and "provide a certain future" for these individuals.

Belinda Osorio, a Honduran-American who lives and works in Florida and has been in the US for decades through TPS, told reporters at a conference call on Tuesday that she would not put her 14-year-old son in danger by going back to Honduras, regardless of the administration's eventual decision. If they don't comply, they will be considered undocumented migrants and could face deportation.
