Biden to Give Temporary 18-month Amnesty to Over 100,000 Haitian Migrants

The Biden administration just made a decision that is not going to sit well with conservatives.

On Saturday, Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas announced that more than 100,000 Haitians currently on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) are being given an 18-month extension.

Mayorkas, in announcing the extension, stated it was being offered due to “social unrest, an increase in human rights abuses, crippling poverty, and lack of basic resources, which are exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

With that extension comes the ability to secure work permits, which will not sit well with American workers who are already struggling to find work.

Let Them Stay

Currently, more than 16 million American workers are looking for employment in this country.

One of the worst-hit industries was the hospitality sector, as restaurants and hotels are still reeling from the pandemic.

I specifically mention that industry because this is where we would expect a lot of these jobs to go if the industry starts to make a comeback.

Keep in mind, in addition to the Haitians, Biden gave more than 300,000 Venezuelans TPS status in March.

Biden will also expand refugee caps, and he is expected to increase overall legal immigration numbers every year.

This could mean millions of additional workers in the next year or so, which means more Americans and current legal residents could remain on their couches out of work.

Republicans will surely use this to attack Democrat congressional seats in both the 2022 and 2024 elections as well as the 2024 presidential election.
