TPS is an immigration acronym that stands for temporary protective status. It was designed as a temporary status for people whose country was undergoing natural disasters or political turmoil. The idea was to grant people in the USA a semi legal
status renewed annually and eventually they would return home or more likely marry an
American. It was never designed to be a permanent arrangement.
Over time this has evolved into a political entitlement. The revenue sent home has become very important for several countries, notably El Salvador.
It is important that we return to the spirit of the official program and remember this is not and was never designed as an entitlement. We need to save these spots for countries whose situation warrants it.
Haitians are the beneficiaries of one type of program HARIA. We should consider giving them another. However, we need to create a similar program for Venezuelans fleeing Hugo's hell hole.
Venezuelans should be granted TpS and should be eligible for permanent status based upon Hugo's misrule.
