Advocates Push for the Redesignation of Temporary Protected Status for Nicaraguans

Posted on 03/27/23

Growing pressure from immigration advocates to extend Temporary Protective Status for Nicaraguans may force the Biden administration to act. In November of 2022, the Department of Homeland Security announced the redesignation of TPS status for several countries, including Nicaragua. Since the 1990s, TPS has protected millions of immigrants who cannot return safely to their country of origin due to specific ongoing circumstances. Although TPS is not a means to permanent long-term legal status, immigrants from TPS-designated countries that have suffered armed conflict, environmental catastrophes, or other extraordinary events may obtain deportation and work protections if their application is approved. If president Biden were to extend TPS for Nicaraguan nationals, it would offer much-needed protection. 

The manipulation of democratic structures by a ruling couple in Nicaragua has caused grave consequences for citizens. President Daniel Ortega and his wife, Vice President Rosario Murillo, have systematically undermined their country’s checks and balances framework. Their efforts have consolidated judiciary and electoral power to circumvent democratic functions. Their regime has stifled the voice of their citizens to maintain control. Such a system is incompatible with a free and fair society and further extends the need for the United States government to reconsider Temporary Protective Status for Nicaraguans.
