The far left is determined to keep as many illegal immigrants in the United States as possible. One group of activists has even launched a new lawsuit against the Trump administration on their behalf. It’s almost like the left cares more about illegals than American citizens. Almost.
The Washington Times reports:
Activists sue to keep 350,000 would-be illegal immigrants in U.S.
Immigrant-rights activists said Wednesday they’ve now sued to stop the Trump administration from canceling special protections for 57,000 Hondurans in the U.S. who would otherwise be illegal immigrants, adding them into an already ongoing lawsuit over some 260,000 others from El Salvador and Haiti.
The lawsuit is the latest test for the Trump administration over Temporary Protected Status, the humanitarian parole past administrations have doled out to protect people stuck in the U.S. while their home countries recover from major natural disasters, wars and epidemics.
Some 260,000 people from El Salvador, here since a 2001 earthquake, and 57,000 Hondurans, here since 1999 after Hurricane Mitch, are covered by TPS. but Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said their countries have finally recovered and under the law, it’s time to go home.
Former acting Secretary Elaine Duke also revoked status for nearly 59,000 Haitians last year.
“Termination of TPS for El Salvador, Haiti, and Honduras would wreak havoc on the lives of hundreds of thousands of people,” the lawsuit says, adding that the migrants themselves are contributing to American society, too.
Of course, this is all really about one thing. Creating new voters for Democrats.
