Posted on 08/02/2019 6:50:23 AM PDT by george76
Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan renewed a temporary amnesty program for about 7,000 Syrian nationals who have been allowed to remain in the United States since 2012.
On Thursday, McAleenan announced that he would extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for thousands of Syrian nationals living across the U.S. for 18 months meaning 7,000 Syrians will be allowed to remain in the country through March 21, 2021.
The Trump administration has been approving and renewing TPS for foreign nationals in the U.S. at Obama era levels. For instance, in Fiscal Year 2018, the Trump administration approved TPS for more than 258,000 foreign nationals. This is about the same level of TPS approvals as Fiscal Year 2015, when Obama was in office.
Most recently, 39 House Republicans including Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH), and Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) voted with House Democrats to pass TPS for Venezuelas population with groups funded by billionaire George Soros and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce lobbying hard to make the legislation a reality.

Officials accuse DHS chief Kevin McAleenan of leaking ICE raids plan to sabotage operation.
Not exactly the direction we had hoped for from him.
DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan is married to Corina Avalos who is from El Salvador.
He is opposed to Trump policies and is just keeping things running til a proper replacement is nominated.
Also Christopher Wray is a Deep State hack.. Chris Christie recommended him Part of the resistance...
Obama holdover = Wray worked under Comey and with Mueller... should be fired.
I agree. Chris Wray is not much better than Comey.
Why? Because Trump wants a Bush-Obama immigration policy, that's why.
Remember when Trump made a big show of “canceling” TPS for several hundred thousand refugees in 2018?
Total scam - most of them can stay until after the 2020 election - and, all of them will get federally funded assistance to find out if they are eligible for permanent residence or more extensions under other federal programs.
You do realize it's been 30 yrs and counting since any president followed the law on immigration? They're all "holdovers". The last president to enforce immigration law was Eisenhower.
Has any President until Trump made such a show of tightening immigration and actually telling us he would do something about it.......and done so little?
I've given up on Trump and taken the historic viewpoint.
Illegal immigration is the economical equivalent of slavery during the collapse of the Roman Empire. Greed and avarice are front and center in DC just like the Roman patricians and our collapse as a nation is not if but when.
We're not going to vote our way out of the DC cancer but like Mad Magazine's "Spy vs Spy" it is amusing to watch. Secession is our only option. Save what you can.
These people should be going to saudi arabia or another country in their region.
They are everywhere here in my city in Canada because True-dope thought flooding us with a bunch of Syrians was a great idea.
My issue is:
1) How do we know these are not ISIS harboring Assad hating extremists?
2) How do we know they are even Syrians. Muslims have been coming as far away as Morocco to Syria to take advantage of the world’s empathy
3) Are any at all Christians?
I do. I thought we elected Trump because he was the first nominee in 30 years who promised to enforce our immigration laws?
Re: They're all “holdovers.”
Correct - they are all holdovers who got PROMOTED during the Obama and Bush Administrations.
Something has to give, this cannot go on status quo.
