How many people even knew there was an 'ebola amnesty?'
https://www.judicialwatch.org/corrup...20190821143600

The protected Africans were not only shielded from removal but also received authorization to work in the U.S. like all other illegal immigrants benefiting from TPS. When the “temporary” protection expired, the Obama administration simply extended it ...

This month the Trump administration announced that the African Ebola TPS will be terminated for illegal aliens from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. “To provide sufficient time for an orderly transition, the Department of Homeland Security gave beneficiaries under these three designations 8 months advance notice of the expiration by publishing 3 notices in the Federal Register on Sept. 22, 2016 (one for each country),” reads a USCIS statement issued last week. “These notices urged individuals who did not have another immigration status to use the time before the terminations became effective in May to prepare for and arrange their departure from the United States or to apply for other immigration benefits for which they may be eligible.”

The initial 18 month Temporary Protection Order was enacted in November, 2014 after it was determined there was no longer an Ebola risk in the US. It authorized qualified people to remain and work in the US. The order was clear that it does NOT result in or lead to permanent residential status.

The TPS was extended in 2016

The TPS status was again extended again by by the Trump Admin in 2017.
