Someone has to blow up the buildings that Americans won’t blow up.

The Department of Homeland Security on Monday issued new regulations that will allow more Syrian refugees to temporarily settle in the United States.

The department estimates that about 9,000 people will be eligible to come to America under the 18-month extension to March 2015 of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Syrians. Another 2,600 or so Syrians already here will be able to apply to renew their status. The Obama administration first gave TPS designation to Syrian citizens and residents last year, and the status was set to expire on Sept. 30.

“The extension of the current Syria TPS designation and re-designation is due to the continued disruption of living conditions in the country that are a result of the extraordinary and temporary conditions that led to the initial TPS designation of Syria in 2012,” the Homeland Security Department said. “The extension is based on ongoing armed conflict in that region and the continued deterioration of country conditions.”

Why extend TPS to a date two years from now when we have no idea whether the Syrian Civil War will last that long? Because TPS is effectively infinite.

Last week, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that TPS had been extended for at least 70,000 Hondurans and Nicaraguans “for an additional 18 months, beginning July 6, 2013, and ending Jan. 5, 2015.” Thanks to American generosity, these TPS winners have been here since 1998 — when Hurricane Mitch hit their homeland.

That was 15 years ago.

Another 250,000 illegal aliens from El Salvador first won TPS golden tickets after an earthquake struck the country … in January 2001. In addition, 60,000 Haitians received TPS after the earthquakes in 2010. Last fall, Napolitano extended their stay until at least 2014. Several hundred Somalis remain in the country with TPS first granted in 1991, along with some 700 Sudanese who first secured TPS benefits in 1997. Last March, the Obama administration extended TPS to an estimated 3,000 Syrian illegal aliens. Guatemala and Pakistan are lobbying for their own TPS designations.

If those 9,000 come. They’re never leaving.

    The democrats continue their “Carpet Bombing” strategy of changing the demographics of white law abiding communities into 3rd world ghettos to forever vote democrat and be on welfare

    More Democratic votes. As proved in Ohio in the 2012 Election, you don’t have to be a US citizen to vote. Why don’t the Republicans fight this? I am not renewing my RNC credentials until they start showing some balls.

    Temporary? There’s nothing temporary about any temporary asylum program. They’ll never leave, and the government will make sure of it.

    Yes. To make anything governmental “temporary” would mean a loss of government jobs. We can’t have these fine government workers having to figure out how to make a living, now can we? That might just fix our economy.

    The misnamed Dept of Homeland Security needs to be dismantled. DHS is just another Obama inversion which does more to imperil American security and safety than guard it.

    We need more mosques……..there are two in my immediate neighborhood already! Neither were here just a few years ago.

    Career parasites are so generous to folks dedicated to murdering Americans.
    But when that happens Napolitano will explain that the system “pinged” and “worked” but that we just closed the cases.

    And the Repubes will say ok and “let’s not throw the immigration baby out with the bath water.”

    Is there anyone in the HOUSE that has a pair???? Impeach, now!! Before you have people here, blowing up the buildings that Americans won’t blow up….

  • Remarkable Kanoodle

    Who needs to stuff the ballot box when you can just stuff the population? The Democrats have taken political strategy beyond the bounds of mere national borders.

  • Lily Swosski

    Why we have to pay all our taxes to those people that doesn’t belong to be here?? DUMBOCRATS are horrible!!!! They keep supporting the people who doesn’t work, encourging illegal people to stay in US and get all those benefits we normal Americans can’t get. Is this our country?? I feel less safety now after importing all those muslims and worry about my job will be taken away from all those TPS holders.
