Not just an extension of time to sign up (which doesn’t end until September anyway), but a whole new designation so all the newest Syrians who got into America since the first TPS was made available can sign up too.
They all want in now that amnesty appears to be on the way!
Here is the press release yesterday from the pro-Arab group. By the way the first TPS for Syrians was supported by federal refugee contractors Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) and the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), as well as the lobbying arm for the contractors—-Refugee Council USA (RCUSA), here.*
This is what they are really after:
The first TPS designation required that the Syrians applying had to have been continually in the US prior to March 29, 2012 and apparently many more have come after that deadline. They want to be sure to get all their nationals signed up! The ADC doesn’t say this in their press release, you have to go to the linked pdf —a ten page document addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano—to get the fine points.
As we have pointed out on many previous occasions, most recently here, there is nothing temporary about Temporary Protected Status!
* Makes no sense to me why refugee contractors who must find work for legitimate refugees (who are really struggling) support amnesty (and they do!) and other job-stealing forms of immigration like TPS. The only thing that makes sense is that they are in the business of supplying future voters for the Democrat Party and to hell with the well-being of the people in their care.
