In 2010, Haiti suffered an earthquake. Obama’s DHS announced that there would be no more deportations. Haitian illegal aliens instantly and magically became “quake refugees” even though they had been living in America when the quake happened. Trump’s DHS warned that the free ride was over.
That was 2017. Now the Biden administration is providing Haitian illegals with TPS yet again.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Monday extended immigration protections for Haitians in the United States, granting work permits and deferral from deportation to those who were in the country as of Nov. 6.
“We are providing much-needed humanitarian relief to Haitian nationals already present in the United States,” said Mayorkas in a statement.
By nationals, Mayorkas means illegals.
Haiti was under TPS or temporary protected status in 2010 over an earthquake. Since then there have been multiple natural disasters and innumerable human ones leading the Biden administration to essentially declare that Haiti is a permanent disaster area.
“The conditions in Haiti, including socioeconomic challenges, political instability, and gang violence and crime — aggravated by environmental disaster — compelled the humanitarian relief we are providing today,” Mayorkas argued.
Does Mayorkas have a timeline for when any of those problems are expected to go away? Is there a point in time when we’ll be able to freely send illegals back to Haiti?
TPS is meant to be temporary. Instead, it’s become a backdoor amnesty for failed states. Using TPS this way is illegal. And it’s why TPS needs to be ended. Period.
