US sets end for temporary residency program for Nicaraguans

Temporary protection actA temporary residency permit program has aided 5,000 citizens from Nicaragua who have lived in the United States for almost two decades. Now the Trump administration is planning to end that program in January 2019.

A decision about how to deal with a similar program for 86,000 residents from Honduras is expected in July.

The acting homeland security secretary, Elaine Duke, said Monday that the program, known as Temporary Protected Status, is no longer necessary for Nicaraguans in the U.S. Duke said temporary residents living under that permit would have 12 months to allow for an orderly transition for their return and for their Central American homeland.

Duke postponed a final decision in the case of Honduras in order to learn more information, automatically extending the current temporary permits for Hondurans in the U.S. for six months, until July 5. The department's announcement came 60 days before the programs for both countries were set to expire on Jan. 5.
