Was Your TPS Extended?
Great news for TPS holders! El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan were extended through Jan 4, 2021!
However, if the government wins in those lawsuits, the ending of the programs will take place within 120 days.
Andres Mejer: So now I want to I want to talk about the third subject because we got a lot of questions about this also. TBS was it extended? Was it not? DACA? What’s going on?
Andres Mejer: I lump them together. They’re not the same, but they’re in a similar situation. What do I mean by that? Is Trump was elected into office and he decided, let me throw out all the immigrants. So even though there’s about 2 million with T.P.S. and DACA with employment authorization that had been here for 10 years or more, that pay taxes, that work here, that have bought homes to have kids, even though they have all of that and they have no crimes, because if they have criminal conduct, they lose their DACA, they lose a TPS. So these are people that did the right thing. Those are the ones that I’m going to throw out. That’s what Trump and tried to do. Now there’s a slightly different scenario in each of them. For TPS that is statutory Trump can’t eliminate it. What instead, what he did is say the Department of State gets to decide what countries get temporary protected status for a period of time. Well, what he did is say, look, the conditions like a hurricane or the earthquake or the civil war, those circumstances no longer exist. And because those circumstances no longer exist, those immigrants can now go back to their country. So terminate TPS. Goodbye. One over one million in immigrants. I’m not exaggerating the number. Not, not, not the severity of what he’s doing. That’s exactly what he’s done. On DACA. It’s a different story because that’s not statutory. That wasn’t passed by Congress and approved by the president. That was created by executive order under President Obama and different order by a different executive, Trump wants to eliminate it. In both circumstances. There are federal court judges that said, hold on a second. Something about what you did is not right. And I’m going to I federal judge. I’m going to stop you. Trump from doing what you tried to do here, because it’s it violates the law. So that’s the background.
Andres Mejer: Now talking about. TPS is great news with TPS holders Salvador, Haiti, Honduras and about Nicaragua, Sudan were all extended to January 4th, 2021. Hey, that’s awesome. You got an extra year. Why? How did this happen? Well, several judges granted injunctions stopping Trump from saying it’s now safe to go back. So while those injunctions are still valid, DHS Department of Homeland Security is going to extend TPS. However, if the government wins those lawsuits, the ending of those programs will take place in one hundred twenty days. So this is good news for Now, but it’s only a temporary solution to an existing problem. Don’t wait. Find out if you have other options today.
