WASHINGTON, DC - The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for approximately 57,000 Honduran nationals will end on January 5, 2020.
AILA President Annaluisa Padilla responded, "Once again, instead of recognizing the dire conditions in the Northern Triangle and the contributions of the thousands of Honduran nationals who have been a part of our country and economy for nearly two decades, the administration has elected to end TPS for Honduras. Honduran TPS beneficiaries are integral to our society and the decision to cast them out after almost 20 years will harm our communities and the businesses that depend on them. Congress must pass a permanent fix to provide relief for long-term TPS beneficiaries."
