Senators Consider Path to Citizenship for TPS Holders

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
Temporary Protected Status is a benefit made available to people unable to return to their countries when disasters, wars or other events occur while the person is in the US. Many spend years in the US and develop long term ties to their US communities. Senator Menendez (D-NJ) is developing language for possible inclusion in the comprehensive immigration bill that will provide a path to citizenship for some or all of the TPS holders in the US. This often forgotten population is often in a limbo state since they often cannot convert to any permanent status but are here for years. I'm glad they may get some relief in a reform bill.

    How about a path to citizenship for people who have been sitting on a visa for 10 years?

    "Some conservative critics have said that the program is problematic because it isn't actually temporary."

    Yeah, kind of like "temporary" guest workers.

    Jack, what is so strange about people living temporary in the country before deciding to stay? It's like complaining that your girlfriend wants a proposal after 2 years of dating, and you thought you were just going out and having casual sex.
