The announcement also puts the recent Haitian migrants into line for the proposed budget reconciliation amnesty that Democrats are expected to push after the August recess.
Federal law allows Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, to grant “Temporary Protected Status” (TPS) to migrants — including illegal migrants — whose home countries are in turmoil.
Roughly 55,000 migrants Haitians got TPS status, with work permits, in 2010 from former President Barack Obama when their homeland was damaged by an earthquake.
The July 30 DHS statement said:
This designation of Haiti for TPS also enables an estimated 100,000 additional individuals to file initial applications for TPS, if otherwise eligible. To be eligible for TPS under this designation, individuals must demonstrate that they have continuously resided in the United States since July 29, 2021. In light of recent events in Haiti, including the July assassination of President Jovenel Moise, Secretary Mayorkas has modified this date from what was previously announced.
The statement suggested that the migrants who will cross from Mexico after July 29 will be excluded from the TPS process. However, Mayorkas’ officials are unlikely to reject the deceptive applications from Haitian migrants who claim they were in the United States illegally before July 29.
The pro-TPS policy reverses former President Donald Trump’s effort to cancel TPS for roughly 400,000 migrants from multiple countries. Media reports indicated Trump wanted to use this policy to win pro-American immigration reforms from Congress.
In June, Mayorkas said his “foremost” priority is the dignity of migrants. The pro-migration favoritism by the Cuban-born Mayorkas causes much harm to the wealth of Americans who live in what Mayorkas calls a “Nation of Immigrants.”
Since January, an increasing number of Haitian migrants have been walking through Biden’s open-border with Mexico:
Roughly 3,200 Haitians were recorded crossing the Mexican border in March, according to a report by the pro-migration Bipartisan Policy Center. The inflow rose to 6,000 in June, not counting migrants who sneaked across the border.
This migration damages ordinary Americans’ career opportunities, cuts their wages, raise their rents, curbs their productivity, shrinks their political clout, and wrecks their open-minded, equality-promoting civic culture.
Overall, legal and illegal migration moves wealth from employees to employers, from families to investors, from young to old, from children to their parents, from homebuyers to investors, from technology to stoop labor. Immigration also moves wealth from heartland red states to the coastal blue states. Within each state, the extraction policy also helps move wealth and status from GOP rural districts to Democrat cities.
