Countdown to TPS Decision Deadline for Yemen and Somalia: 2 Weeks

This weekend, CBS Los Angeles reported that Honduran Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders gathered in Los Angeles to protest the Trump administration’s recent termination of the program for Honduras. There are currently 90,000 legally working Honduran immigrants who call the U.S. home, some for decades, who will be at risk of deportation if there are no legislative solutions to protect them. If deported, they will face deplorable social and economic conditions back in Honduras. You can read the article here.

You can find an excerpt of the article below:  

Hondurans gathered in Echo Park Saturday to protest a Trump immigration policy that might see them kicked out of the United States.

Many of the protesters told CBS2’s Greg Mills they were marching for the right to stay in a country that has been home for decades.

At issue is something called Temporary Protected Status (TPS.)

Hondurans were allowed to come to this country after their country suffered a devastating hurricane in 1998. (Hurricane Mitch killed 11,000 people, 7,000 in Honduras alone.)
