Trump administration to terminate special protections for 9,000 Nepalese immigrants

Vastavam web: The Trump administration has decided to terminate the temporary protection status for nearly 9,000 Nepalese immigrants with authorities asking them to leave or find another way to stay in the US to allow for an orderly transition.Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a designation afforded to nationals of countries experiencing humanitarian crisis such as violent conflict, environmental disasters, earthquake or epidemics that would prevent nationals from returning safely.

All of these people from Nepal would have to go back to Nepal or face deportation.However, to allow for an orderly transition, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M Nielsen has determined to delay the termination for 12 months.The designation will now terminate on June 24, 2019, the Department of Homeland Security said.
