“The Secretary of Homeland Security may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country's nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately. USCIS may grant TPS to eligible nationals of certain countries (or parts of countries), who are already in the United States. “A country can get a TPS rating due to having a civil war, epidemic or natural disaster.El Salvador was placed on the TPS list due to an earthquakes in 2001—thirteen years ago, Honduras has been on the list since a hurricane in 1998—sixteen years ago. On August 18, 2003, Juan Mann wrote Put the “Temporary” back in “Temporary Protected Status”—At Least! on VDARE.com. Ten years later, Michelle Malkin wrote Object Lesson: “Temporary” Amnesty Never Dies. [April 12, 2013] “Temporary” indeed.The USCIS website adds that during this “temporary” period,

We could provide an incentive—like deporting Central Americans back to Mexico. But we don’t.This isn’t a policy failure by the Obama Administration. Our own government is aligned with the governments of Mexico and Central America against the American people.If the Republican leadership were truly serious about stopping this, they’d be playing hardball in the U.S. Congress. They’d be shutting down all other business, they’d be holding press conferences, they’d be using parliamentary tricks, they’d have started impeachment proceedings.But they’re not, are they? That makes them just like those foreign government officials and the Obama Administration–collaborators in Obama’s project of “fundamentally transforming” the historic American nation.Time for a new party?
