another group loses Temporary Protected Status and must leave the US: Nepali

Thousands of Nepali immigrants lose special residency protections, must leave U.S.

The Trump administration is ramping up efforts to get rid of programs that provide temporary residency permits for immigrants from countries ravaged by natural and human catastrophes.

Last week, the Department of Homeland Security announced its decision to terminate protections granted to Nepali immigrants after a massive earthquake devastated their country in 2015.

The move follows similar cancellations of temporary protections for immigrants from other countries hit by natural disasters or violent conflicts, including El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan.

The Temporary Protected Status program was created by Congress in 1990 to avoid sending foreigners back to nations destabilized by natural disasters, armed conflict and other calamities. Admission into the TPS program shields immigrants from deportation, grants them a work permit and allows them to travel outside the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security terminated the TPS designation for Nepal following a review, required by law, that concluded the South Asian country has recovered sufficiently to accommodate the return of its citizens living in the United States. The protections for Nepali immigrants ends June 24, 2019, a grace period designed to allow an orderly transition.

4. Agree with what you say. Trump cannot make America White again!

Then all the people who came to America will have to leave as North America belong to the Native Indians. Perhaps, the Native Indians should tell trump to take his towers and his fat ass back to where his fore parents came from! That would be justice with this piece a shit who is the resident in the White House!

2. Ridiculous, though expected

Nepal is supposed to have recovered from a devastating earthquake when Trump can't even repair Puerto Rico? I have met numerous Nepalis in the DC-NoVa area in the last few years, and they are educated, fluent in English and hard-working. What we could possibly gain from kicking them out is a mystery to me.

By the way, a country situated entirely in the Himalayas being designated as a "South Asian" country just because many residents speak languages also spoken in India seems a bit odd, but what do I know?

5. Same here.

Have friends from Nepal and find them hard-working and educated too.
