U.S. to end protected immigration status for Nicaraguans

The elimination of TPS protection for these groups would affect hundreds of thousands of people.

"These are people who have had to go to the Department of Homeland security every 18 months, and have shown their papers, their information, their records, have paid to be renewed". Their protection was set to expire January 5.

Proponents of TPS for people from Central America and Haiti argue that ending the designation for those countries is counterproductive and could also drive more illegal immigration.

At the same time, the U.S. administration extended the TPS for six months, until July 2018, for the same reason for some 86,160 Hondurans. Haiti received its initial TPS designation in 2010 after an natural disaster left 1.5 million people homeless and injured 300,000 people. Haitians affected by the decision number 46,000.
