Statement: El Pueblo Opposes End of TPS for Nicaraguans

El Pueblo opposes the decision by the Trump Administration this week to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 2,500 Nicaraguan citizens who have made their lives here in the United States over the past 20 years.  This administration continues to put the lives of marginalized communities at risk by forcing individuals underground and away from legal protections and access to safe working conditions.  This administration’s energy would be better spent working to provide a clean pathway to citizenship, without damaging concessions that hurt immigrant communities.  El Pueblo stands in solidarity with refugees from Nicaragua, Haiti, and the Sudan, as well all of those whose lives and futures are being put at risk by policy changes that fail to respect the human rights and dignity of immigrants, refugees, and people of color.
