“Senate Democrats are urging the Biden administration to use its authority to protect what is estimated could be millions more Central Americans from deportation — as Democratic lawmakers and activists continue to look for ways to grant amnesty and other protections to illegal [sic] immigrants. In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Secretary of State Antony Blinken, 33 Democrats led by Sen. Bob Menendez, D-NJ, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer urge the administration to redesignate El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and make a new designation for Guatemala. ‘It is our assessment that the severe damage caused by back-to-back hurricanes just over one year ago, combined with extreme drought conditions, and the social and economic crises exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, warrant such an action by the administration,’ they wrote.” (01/11/22)
