Temporary Protected Status extended 18 more months (El Salvador) - 01/10/12

... nothing says "Permanent" quite like Temporary Protected Status. That government program allows foreign citizens to stay in the U.S. on a "temporary" basis due to disasters or strife in their homelands. It's important to note that those covered by it are here legally: they aren't illegal aliens. The issue is that TPS keeps getting extended year after year. Another issue is that it lets the...

Newt Gingrich considers "draft boards" for immigration (+Jorge Ramos, DREAM Act, sanctuary movement, Michael Scherer) - 05/16/11

... the fact that he helped push Temporary Protected Status and how he "helped save hundreds of thousands of Central Americans from being deported" [4]. The problem with TPS is it's actually "Permanent Protected Status", as it keeps being extended year after year. While most of those covered by TPS are law-abiding, there's also a large, dangerous criminal element which has infiltrated the U.S....

... an executive order or through Temporary Protected Status. 5. He took the side of illegal aliens against U.S. citizens for scarce education resources and at the same time compared legalizing illegal aliens to the Civil Rights and Women's Suffrage movements: If you think of the history of the civil rights struggle, though even after Brown v. Board of Education, there were still struggles to ensure...

Reid-Schumer-Menendez immigration plan: biometric IDs and amnesty with border enforcement as bait - 04/29/10

Sens. Harry Reid, Charles Schumer, and Bob Menendez have released the outlines of their own comprehensive immigration reform plan; a PDF is available here. The first, tough-talking part deals with increased border security; see this for some of the ways it's misleading. After having increased border security, an amnesty will be enacted.

Stay of deportation for thousands of Liberians extended 18 months (like "Temporary" Protected Status) - 03/19/10

Temporary Protected Status is, as discussed in the posts at the link, largely a misnomer. The latest example of how things that are marked as "temporary" become permanent comes from a new Barack Obama directive involving those from Liberia. This current case involves a different program - Deferred Enforced Departure - and smaller numbers of people, but the concept is the same. (The differences...

Why Andrea Quarantillo of USCIS should be fired (misleads about TPS, remittances; Haiti; 100,000 expected to apply) - 03/12/10

... not an amnesty, absolutely not. Temporary Protected Status is a benefit", she says. People with a criminal record cannot apply, she stresses. Nothing in those two sentences makes sense. The stock response to someone saying something is an amnesty is to talk about how it has to be earned; she's saying instead it's a "benefit". Maybe she should check with Frank Sharry or Tamar Jacoby first. The...

Up to 200,000 Haitians will apply for TPS, not 30,000 as they said; Mayorkas pulls out all the stops - 01/20/10

... number of potential applicants for Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, is far larger than earlier predictions of about 30,000 Haitians nationwide, according to local immigrant organizations and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials. The higher figures emerged Wednesday during a briefing with reporters by USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas. He was in Miami to meet with several South...

WSJ wants "amnesty" for Haitian illegal aliens; misleads; shows how can't be trusted (TPS) - 01/19/10

... establishment is lying when it refers to Temporary Protected Status; the establishment has little intention of "temporary" being accurate: You might even call [the decision to extend TPS to Haitian illegal aliens] amnesty of a sort, if we can use that politically taboo word. But we hope even the most restrictionist voices on the right and in the labor movement will understand the humanitarian...

Clarence Page misleads, promotes bad policy (Haiti, TPS, immigration, remittances) - 01/16/10

... other countries who were put into Temporary Protected Status years ago are still here. He also fails to note that those under TPS, through the network effect, make it easier for family members, friends, and others to come here illegally. More of the downsides of TPS are discussed here, and if Page wants to suggest something that would be effective he should promote some sort of jobs training...

"Temporary" Protected Status for Haitian illegal aliens pushed by profiteers (Haiti earthquake) - 01/14/10

... the calls from some to give "Temporary Protected Status" in the U.S. to Haitian illegal aliens. The word "temporary" is generally a misnomer as that status is renewed over and over. TPS would be an infected band-aid that wouldn't fix Haiti's structural problems and in some cases would result in importing Haiti's problems into the U.S. It would also result in brain-draining that country of its...

Doug Feaver will make you "hate" the Washington Post all over again (N.C. Aizenman) - 03/28/08

... times and as a result fell out of Temporary Protected Status] lit his candle, it illuminated a large, framed photograph of him and his wife embracing the children. Mauricio stood for a moment, looking up at their grinning faces, before walking out of the room. I have to wonder: do the WaPo's "reporters" ever break out laughing as they write these things? Does the WaPo hire people who used to...

In 2000 the company formed the First Data Western Union Foundation, which is funded by First Data, its employees and its agents in other countries.

"Temporary" Protected Status extended; preview of "guest" worker schemes - 02/23/06

... Bush administration has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for hundreds of thousands of Central Americans. They get yet another year in the U.S. Some of them have been here since 1998, others since 2001. Obviously, this is exactly how the various "guest" worker schemes proposed by Bush and others would work: at the start of the program we'd be promised that they'd have to leave...
