Trump keeps on doing what he promised he would do.

It was never meant to last for decades, and these people had plenty of time before to deal with it. No sympathies from me.

The Trump administration was expected to announce Friday that it is ending special immigration protections for about 57,000 Hondurans after a devastating hurricane two decades ago, adding them to hundreds of thousands of other immigrants from countries battered by violence and natural disasters who have lost temporary permission to be in the United States.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's widely anticipated move to revoke temporary protected status for Hondurans will mean an estimated 428,000 people face rolling deadlines beginning late this year to leave or obtain legal residency in other ways.

I hope the U.S. won't break up families, especially those with anchors. That would be a shame.

Adult US citizens can sponsor immediate family members.

Yep, I said the same thing on another thread. Many of these people were here illegally before Honduras was designated for TPS, so if they had kids, they are well over 18 by now and can sponsor their parents. I'm not sure, though, if any 'illegal presence' provision would affect the a parents. I also believe if they were under TPS, it would not, but if they had any time here where they had NO legal status, that might be an issue.

Nothing stopping illegals aliens who have started a family in the US in a way to circumvent immigrate laws that they can't take his/her family (anchor babies?) back to the country of origin whether they are US citizens or not.

Have you ever informed yourself what it takes and what time frames to bring immediate family members to the US?
