The Temporary Protected Status program (TPS) provides refuge in the United States to more than 300,000 aliens from a total of 13 countries: El Salvador, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, Liberia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

They are supposed to leave when it is safe for them to return to their own countries, but it can take many years for conditions in their countries to improve. The need for TPS can last for decades.

It does not include a path to permanent resident status, but should aliens who have lived in the United States for decades be required to leave when their TPS is terminated?

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) says that at some point they have been here so long that they should be allowed to remain permanently: “There should be some rational way to transition people who have been here for a long time … who because of the length of their stay have basically become valued members of our community.”

    Excellent idea! This makes a great deal of sense and I fully support it.

    The latest (September 15) White House comment to the effect that Trump might insist on Congress passing the RAISE Act, which would take America a long way back toward the whites-only immigration system that Jeff Sessions praised in his immigration "Handbook" less than 3 years ago (and Adolf Hitler also claimed to have been inspired by 90 years earlier) as a condition of agreeing to sign any legislation granting relief to the DREAMERS does not bode well for their chances of receiving any help from a president who has had kind and supportive words for DACA recipients at the same time that he has pulled the rug out from underneath them.
