President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted “temporary” amnesty to over 100,000 Haitians that are illegally in the United States.
By granting the illegal aliens Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, they can all legally remain in the United States and be employed at US businesses.

There are currently 16.4 million Americans who are unemployed.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced on Saturday that the extended protected status will be applied to Haitians who have been in the US since at least May 21, 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” in their own nation.
Breitbart News notes that the federal government has been extending TPS for Haitians for more than a decade. They also reported that in March, TPS was given to roughly 320,000 Venezuelans and 1,600 Burma nationals who can now remain in the U.S. for at least 18 months.
“While originally intended to be temporary, TPS has become a quasi-amnesty for otherwise illegal aliens created under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1990 (INA) that prevents the deportation of foreign nationals from countries that have suffered through famine, war, or natural disasters,” the report states. “Since the Clinton administration, TPS has been transformed into a de facto amnesty program as the Bush, Obama, Trump, and now Biden administrations have continuously renewed and expanded the program for a variety of countries.”
