The National TPS Alliance, a network of TPS holders, their family and community members, and other allies, condemns the confusion and anxiety created by DHS’s failure to publish Federal Register Notices for Honduras and Nicaragua until today. On November 6, 2017, DHS announced the termination of TPS for Nicaragua and failed to make a decision regarding Honduras. DHS’s guidance for devastated communities was to wait for further instructions in a Federal Register publication. Today, December 15, 2017, a full 39 days after the announcement, that publication was finally made. The two Federal Register Notices officially open up the TPS re-registration period for TPS holders from Honduras and Nicaragua, whose work permits and TPS status expire on January 5, 2018. Rational readings of the legal obligations of the U.S. government to provide “timely notice”, along with the customary practice of DHS to open up re-registration 60 days prior to the expiration of TPS status have not been followed.
