Heartless. Mean. Cruel. Crazy. Evil.
Whatever negative words you can think of will be hurled at American president Donald Trump if he holds steadfast and begins rounding up Mestizos who illegally came to the U.S. claiming refugee status.
As the article below tells us, some of them have been in the U.S. for decades, catered to by every previous presidential administration.
The US State Department said that Central Americans and Haitians granted temporary status, some who have lived in the country for 20 years, could now be sent to their home countries.
They had originally been given Temporary Protected Status because their nations had been deemed unstable due to armed conflict and natural disasters.
But the Washington Post reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has ruled those conditions no longer apply.
The Department of Homeland Security now has until Monday to announce its plans for about 57,000 Hondurans and 2,500 Nicaraguans whose protections are due to expire.
A large number fled to the US illegally in 1998 as Hurricane Mitch battered Central America and have had their status renewed ever since.
Under the changes, the refugees could be arrested and sported once their protections expire.
So far, the Department of Homeland Security has refused to say what action will be taken.
A decision on the other 240,000 refugees who have the status will be made by January.
Many of them have homes, businesses and children who were born in America.
According to the paper, Donald Trump’s administration has stressed the programme was never meant to allow permanent residency in America.
An official said: “It is fair to say that this administration is interpreting the law, exactly as it is, which the previous one did not.
“It is very clear what needs to be done.”
Mr Trump campaigned for the presidency last year on a promise to deport large numbers of immigrants.
Last month, people close to the administration said the White House was considering anti-immigration activists’ appeals to pull back on the programme.
And this week, following the truck terror attack in New York that killed eight people, the President urged Congress to end the Diversity Immigrant Visa program under which suspect Sayfullo Saipov entered the United States in 2010.
The diversity program, signed into law in 1990 by President George Bush, was designed to provide more permanent resident visas to people from countries with low US immigration rates.
There’s a split on attitudes toward Trump by commenters here. I speculate that the anti-Trumpers are purists who would like to see a president stand before Congress and the American people to denounce the Jewish conspiracy while announcing that the FBI was arresting Wall Street tycoons and a host of other Jewish power brokers.
Then there are the pragmatists like me. Rounding up the un-American Deep State power elites would be a wonderful thing.
However, I’ll take what I can get. And deporting 300,000 Mestizos gets my seal of approval. They weren’t supposed to have stayed this long so they really don’t have much to complain about.
