CLOSING TODAY: Bipartisan TPS Letter

On November 20, 2017, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine C. Duke announced her decision to terminate Haiti’s Temporary Protected Status designation, effective July 22, 2019. As a result, more than 50,000 Haitians will have to return to a country
struggling with the continuing legacy of the 2010 earthquake, cholera epidemic, food insecurity crisis, and the devastation inflicted by Hurricanes Matthew, Irma, and Maria. The Administration also recently announced its decision to end Temporary Protected
Status Nicaragua and Sudan, imperiling the lives of thousands of people from these countries currently in the United States. These actions run contrary to the historical bipartisan consensus concerning the Temporary Protected Status program and demonstrate
the need for Congress to act to protect the lives of all 300,000 TPS beneficiaries.

in order to force a change in local law enforcement immigration enforcement priorities.
