John Kelly reportedly pressured the Homeland Security chief to end Honduran immigrants' protected status

The Homeland Security Department decided on Monday to extend the temporary protected status of thousands of Hondurans in the US.
White House chief of staff John Kelly was reportedly frustrated by the decision, calling the acting Homeland Security directly to push back against it.


An "irritated" John Kelly called acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke on Monday to pressure her to rescind the protected residency status of some Central American migrants, current and former administration officials told The Washington Post.

Monday was the Homeland Security Department's deadline to decide on the status of nearly 60,000 Hondurans and 2,500 Nicaraguans who were permitted to remain in the US under temporary protected status after 1998, when Hurricane Mitch struck Central America.

Trump administration officials have been generally critical of temporary protected status as a misguided immigration policy, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had notified Homeland Security that conditions in Central America had improved enough to send them back.

Duke ultimately decided to end the status for Nicaraguans, who now have until January to change their immigration status or leave the country. But she deferred a decision on the Honduran immigrants for six months, believing she did not have enough information on that group and wanting to act cautiously, as many of them have lived in the US for 20 years or more.

Kelly, who was Homeland Security secretary before being named White House chief of staff this summer, reportedly called Duke from Japan as Homeland Security officials were preparing to announce that decision. .......................
