Kobach: Trump failed 'big test' on immigration with Haiti

TPS holders from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti have 273,000 American-born children, according to the American Immigration Council.

As they did in announcing the Nicaragua decision, officials once again invited Congress to pass a law that would create a permanent solution for the people who have received temporary status - many of whom have been in the country for a decade or more.

TPS for Honduras and Nicaragua are now set to expire on January 5.

That's why I continue to urge the administration to extend Haiti's TPS designation for 18 more months.

Photo Supporters of the program that gives people from some countries temporary protection from deportation rallied in Los Angeles last week.

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

Since the 2010 natural disaster, the number of displaced people in Haiti has decreased by 97 percent. Said Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D, NY9) in a statement released yesterday afternoon.

In Haiti's case, the DHS says it determined the "temporary conditions" caused by the massive quake no longer exist. "In the midst of rebuilding and revitalizing its overall infrastructure, large influxes of nationals will disrupt and negatively impact the nation's path towards recovery", Opal Tometi, BAJI's executive director and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, said in a statement. Haiti has also demonstrated a commitment to adequately prepare for when the country's TPS designation is terminated.

At least 16 percent of Haitian TPS holders have lived in the US for at least two decades. A State Department official said the US had spent about $100 million to combat the cholera epidemic alone. "Temporary Protection Status is critical". She said this would allow for an orderly transition before the designation terminates on July 22, 2019.

"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. That could complicate decisions for families faced with returning to Haiti. The return of tens of thousands of people is only going to make conditions worse. The vast majority are from Central America and Haiti. In addition, for both Haitians and Central Americans, their economic contributions to both the United States and their home countries will now be lost.

The Trump administration announced Monday it was ending the special designation effective July 2019. For example, Maria Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for the liberal health care advocacy group Health Care for All, said TPS beneficiaries are now eligible to buy insurance on the state's Health Connector. The unusually long lead time will give Haitians now under protection an opportunity to seek some other kind of legal status if they qualify - or to make arrangements to leave. "With immigrants under TPS contributing so much to our communities, it is not only a matter of conscience but of common sense".
