TPS or Temporary Protected Status is one of the worst scams in the immigration system. TPS is extended to immigrants from dysfunctional countries, like say Haiti, pretty much indefinitely giving illegal aliens from those countries legal status and the ability to work. TPS has become a backdoor amnesty.
Where the Trump administration tried to at least wind down some TPS designations, Biden is extending them to keep the illegal invasion going. Including a whopping designation to benefit almost half a million Venezuelan illegals.
Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas today announced the extension and redesignation of Venezuela for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, due to extraordinary and temporary conditions in Venezuela that prevent individuals from safely returning.
Can we rename it the Department of Homeland Insecurity? This is the opposite of security.
Any Venezuelans who arrived here before July 31, 2023, now have a free pass, while those who are coming now have to wait for the next redesgination 18 months from now.
There are currently approximately 242,700 TPS beneficiaries under Venezuela’s existing TPS designation. There are an additional approximately 472,000 nationals of Venezuela who may be eligible under the redesignation of Venezuela.
Mayorkas and Biden are adding nearly half a million to 242,000. Many from among the army of Illegals who swarmed across the border when Biden ended Title 42 are eligible for legal work permits under this move.
How many more Venezuelans will come to make it in time for the next TPS amnesty?
Maybe next time it’ll be a million.
