DHS DIDN’T ADDRESS HAITI AND EL SALVADOR

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

The Government announced a six-month extension for the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Honduran nationals. The TPS for Honduras, with 86,163 beneficiaries is now temporarily extended until July 5th, 2018, when the Department of Homeland Security will reevaluate its position. Meanwhile, TPS for Nicaraguans was terminated. This means that 5,349 immigrants will lose their permits to live and work in the U.S.

TPS for Nicaraguans will end on January 5th, 2019. They will get one year from the date of termination. This period will allow an “orderly transition” for the beneficiaries to be able to seek an ‘alternative status’. That period also allows for those who need to return, to get ready and seek reintegration to their country. The government didn’t make any annoucnements regarding the TPS status for Haiti and El Salvador, which expire on January 22nd and March 9th, respectively.

Reasoning behind the decision

In the cases of Honduras and Nicaragua, the U.S granted the TPS in 1998 after hurricane Mitch devastated Central America. El Salvador received TPS in 2001 after a series of earthquakes and Haiti in 2010 after their catastrophic earthquake. In making the recent decision for Nicaragua, DHS “determined that substantial but temporary conditions caused by hurricane Mitch do not exist anymore, therefore the current TPS designation is considered terminated.”

Regarding Honduras, however, the TPS was also motivated by hurricane Mitch, but DHS delayed their decision due to “lack of definitive information regarding the conditions in the country compared to those before the hurricane.” DHS hinted that the TPS for Honduras might end at the end of the automatic extension of six months.
