White House chief of staff John Kelly pressured Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke to cancel the immigration status of……
nearly 60,000 Hondurans.
ACTING SECRETARY: Elaine Duke decided Monday to extend Honduras’s designation within an immigration program known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which allows citizens of designated countries to live and work in the United States. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had a Monday deadline to decide whether to keep TPS for Honduras and Nicaragua. Duke kept the deadline but waited until 8 p.m. to make an announcement. She declined to make a decision on Honduras, which automatically triggered a six-month extension of the designation according to a report.
LEFTIST DUKE: was angered by what she saw as Kelly and White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert’s “intrusion” into the decisionmaking process.
JOHN KELLY: Was President Trump’s first secretary of Homeland Security, but left the post in July to become POTUS chief of staff after Reince Priebus quite his role.
JONATHAN HOFFMAN: The DHS spokesman, told reporters that it was “perfectly normal for them to discuss the issue before she had reached a decision.” “As with many issues, there were a variety of views inside the administration on a policy. The Acting Secretary took those views and advice [on] the path forward for TPS and made her decision based on the law,” said Hoffman.
