Trump Administration Deals Another Cruel Blow to Immigrants with Termination of TPS for Nepalese Community

Trump is systematically disappearing millions of people of color — all people of conscience must rise up and resist!

Washington, D.C. - Today, the Trump administration announced the termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 9,000 Nepalese immigrants living and working in the United States. The Nepalese community joins Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador as the latest target in Trump’s decision to uproot and drive away working class survivors of natural disaster back to their countries of origin, despite unstable conditions.

Cristina Jimenez, Executive Director and Co-Founder of United We Dream, issued the following response:

“Our Nepalese sisters and brothers came to this country seeking refuge and the chance to live in safety — but now the Trump administration has announced a plan to shamelessly drive them out.

“It takes wells of resilience to survive a natural disaster and start over in another country, only to be told that if you don’t leave your shelter, you’ll be chased out by another disaster: deportation agents. To the members of Adhikaar and community members from Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, El Salvador and Nepal: we see you, we hear you, we love you.

“United We Dream stands in staunch opposition to the Trump administration’s savage decision to terminate TPS for Nepal and calls on Congress to do everything in their power to enact permanent protections for TPS holders and to defund the deportation forces that target these and other immigrant communities.

“With the killing of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and TPS programs for immigrants for many countries as well as unleashing the deportation force to run rampant through our communities, Trump is systematically disappearing millions of people of color.

“All people of conscience must rise up and resist because this is our home and we are #HereToStay.”

United We Dream is the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation, a powerful network made up of over 400,000 members and 48 affiliate organizations across 26 states. UWD’s vision is to build a multi-racial, multi-ethnic movement of young people who organize and advocate at the local and national levels for the dignity and justice of immigrants and communities of color in the United States.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Keep up the good work on your blog.

    Regards

It previously was the troublesome difficulty for me, however , spending time with this well-written avenue you processed that made me to jump for gladness. Now i’m thankful for your guidance and in addition trust you find out what an amazing job you have been doing teaching many people all through a site. Most probably you haven’t encountered all of us.

    I’ve been having issues with my Windows hosting. It has set me back quite a bit while making the next list. This is the current list that I have. I should add another list in less than a week. I’ll let you all know when the next list is ready. Thank you for your patience.
