Trump's Anti-Immigration Agenda Puts 60000 Haitians in Peril

Not Released

The AP obtained internal emails in which a "top immigration official wanted not only crime data on Haitians who are protected from deportation under the Temporary Protected Status program, but also how many were receiving public benefits".

Haitians with TPS will not be targeted by immigration officials for early deportation, senior officials said.

Critics of Trump's decision say TPS beneficiaries, who are allowed to work in the USA, contribute to the economy and pay taxes.

"This administration has no plan in place for the children who are USA citizens but may now lose their parents and caregivers to deportation", said Amanda Baran of the Washington office of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, a advocacy group for immigrants. Earlier this month, Ms. Duke ended the protected status of about 2,500 Nicaraguans, but she defied the White House by delaying for six months a decision on a far larger group of about 57,000 Hondurans.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), however, now has until November 23 to make a determination on whether to extend the TPS designation once again.

After Hadid announced in August that she would come to Shanghai, many Chinese netizens pounced anew, warning her to stay away. His rumoured girlfriend Camille Rowe is also thought to be returning to the Victoria's Secret runway this year.

"I don't see any justification for this at all", she said.

The 18-month deadline, Duke said, will allow for an "orderly transition", permitting the Haitians to "arrange their departure", and their government to prepare for their arrival.

According to DHS, the department can designate a country for Temporary Protected Status when it has been affected by "conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country's nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately".

About 1,000 people lost their lives and survivors were left to rebuild and recover once more.

"Since the 2010 natural disaster, the number of displaced people in Haiti has decreased by 97 percent", the department said in a press release.

Gujarat Assembly Elections: BJP declares second list of candidates
The BJP is expected to release remaining candidates for 76 seats in the next few days. The Gujarat Assembly will go to polls in two-phases on 9th and 14th of next month.

Under TPS, Haitian nationals have been able to remain in the United States since 1999 under the temporary amnesty program.

Rocio Saenz, executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, which claims thousands of members living here under TPS, called the decision "heartbreaking, and harmful in every way".

A senior official briefing reporters Monday said that the 18 month "wind-down is a lengthy time to allow families with US -born children to make decisions about what to do, and make arrangements".

The 18-month window is meant to give Haitians time to prepare to leave the USA or to seek an alternate legal immigration status. The country of Haiti is still struggling to fix from the quake more than seven years later. "As such we also denounce this Administration's continued immigrant scapegoating and race-baiting tactics which are used to gin-up support from a dwindling base of scared and misinformed people that are being manipulated while Trump, his family and enablers walk off with billions of dollars". Representative Illean Ros-Lehtinen took to Twitter Monday evening to share what she saw on the ground in Haiti after both disasters, writing that she "can personally attest that Haiti is not prepared to take back almost 60,000 TPS recipients under these hard and harsh conditions". But if beneficiaries stay in the US without legal status after TPS ends, they will lose that coverage.
