The United States is ending temporary protected immigration status for tens of thousands of Hondurans who have been allowed to live and work in the United States since 1999, following a hurricane that ravaged their country.

The decision, expected to be announced Friday, will strip protection from more than 50,000 Hondurans, the second-largest group of foreigners to benefit from the status, according to two officials at the Department of Homeland Security.

Determined to rein in both legal and illegal immigration, the Trump administration since last year has scrapped similar protections for citizens from several countries. This week, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen determined that conditions have improved sufficiently in Honduras to warrant suspension of protected status for its citizens in the United States, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the decision in advance.

Program administrators likely will give Hondurans in the program a few months to get their affairs in order before having to leave.

 

EDITOR'S COMMENT:  Only in America could some government public servants consider almost twenty YEARS to be "temporary."  Think about how absurd it is that a hurricane in 1999 which caused widespread damage, took almost twenty years to clean up enough so their people could return home?  Twenty YEARS?  I wonder how many of those Hondurans are registered to vote?  I'll bet more than a few.  OUT.  All of ya.  OUT!!!
