US Lawmakers from both the parties are keen on a permanent solution for Temporary Protected Status program. They have said that the US Congress must find a permanent solution to this issue. This was after the Trump administration decided to end the TPS for Nicaraguans in the US. The program has been designed to offer refuge to select immigrants affected by natural disasters or wars.
The US Lawmakers have appealed to the White House to reconsider its decision to end the TPS for Nicaraguans. Earlier it was announced by the Trump administration that TPS for 5,000 Nicaraguans would end in January 2019. These have been residing in the US for almost 20 years now, as quoted by the Economic Times.
The decision for 86,000 Hondurans in the US under the TPS program is due by July 2018. Nancy Pelosi the Democratic leader from California said that lives of thousands of people are threatened. These hard-working people who have contributed to the US in every way are at legal risk, added the leader.
Nancy Pelosi said that the US Congress must pass a bill cutting across party lines. This is because White House is failing to keep families together and safeguard vulnerable people.
Paul Ryan the House Speaker did not express his views regarding the decision for Nicaraguans. He said that he is yet to examine the decision in depth. Elaine Duke acting Homeland Security Secretary had decided to end the TPS for Nicaraguans. Duke also urged the US Lawmakers to find a permanent solution to the TPS program, in a statement released later. The statement by Duke also acknowledged the troubles being faced by Nicaraguans as well as other overseas nationals.
