Last week while collecting signatures for the in-state tuition for illegal immigrants referendum, a few of us in Boonsboro were confronted by an Open Borders activist from Identity, Inc. which I told you about in a post here. You might want to visit or revisit that post now and then read on below.
One of the things our harasser said in response to my question about how the illegals who would receive in-state tuition might have a path to citizenship she said they (activists including CASA de Maryland) were working on TPS. She mentioned Asylum too—El Salvadoran gays are persecuted, she said. So those claiming to be homosexuals are seeking asylum in the US. (I’ll have to tell you about that asylum scam another day.)
So, when I saw this article from the Gazette earlier in the week about the large number of immigrants from El Salvador in Maryland this line near the end about TPS (Temporary Protected Status) confirmed her comment to me. When they say “pushing for” or “working on” they are attempting to extend the deadline for those temporarily “legal” immigrants here on TPS to return to their country of origin.
CASA advocacy specialist Helen Melton:
…. there are times when individual nationalities are pushing for a specific issue, such as the temporary protected status program for refugees from several Central American nations, including El Salvador.
TPS is a scam!
I have some familiarity with TPS through my other investigative work on refugees and asylees. Here is one post of many about how the “temporary” permission to stay is extended and extended.
Basically, the US declares that due to some ‘event’ in some country in the world, the country is too unsafe or unstable for those who came to the US illegally (or legally through such programs as the student visa program) to return to their country of origin. A date is set for them to return and then extended and extended and extended. Eventually those with TPS find jobs, homes, and businesses and then in places like Maryland where drivers licenses were given out indiscriminately they appear to be citizens.
Indeed, just this past month Janet Napolitano extended the stay for Haitians who were in the US illegally at the time of the earthquake and granted TPS. Now they can stay until 2013, here. And, I predict their departure will be extended and extended as that new departure date approaches.
So, how and when did TPS begin for El Salvadorans?
Remember Hurricane Mitch? No, I don’t either! But, on November 5, 1998, then Attorney General Janet Reno granted TPS to El Salvadorans illegally in the US because it would not be humane to return them to a hurricane devastated country (here)! And, their departure has been extended ever since. Mark Krikorian, writing at the Center for Immigration Studies has a detailed account as well about this LEGAL immigration scam!
By the way, those with TPS are legally allowed to work in the US, and they can get drivers licenses. It does not, however, offer a path to citizenship.
My guess is that all those El Salvadorans in the US on TPS, perhaps even some of those leading Maryland elected officials cited by the Gazette, got Maryland drivers licenses when we were giving them out like candy and they are consequently voting! Everyone just assumes they are US citizens when they may not be!
According to the USCIS, Temporary Protected Status has most recently been extended until early 2012 for those from El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua, so when the CASA spokeswoman told the Gazette that they were “pushing for” or our harasser in Boonsboro said to me that they were “working on” TPS, they are probably attempting to extend TPS beyond the 2012 election (gotta make sure they can vote for Obama, Senator Cardin and for in-state tuition for illegal aliens)! Gee, I wonder if US Senators Mikulski and Cardin are helping them with that!
The next time you hear someone say, “I’m o.k. with LEGAL immigration, it’s just ILLEGAL I oppose,” think about Temporary Protected Status!
Be sure to read the whole Gazette story, there is lots of interesting information in it about things like redistricting to get districts more concentrated with immigrants.
