But supporters of the program say Nicaraguan TPS holders have deep roots in the community and have been in the country for decades. While infrastructure may have been rebuilt after the destruction, the status has been reauthorized every 18 months ever since because of the violent conditions in both countries.
"The decision to end TPS status for Nicaragua is part of Trump's racist drive to force millions of people of color underground, into jails and out of the country".
Democratic legislators criticized the decision of the United States government to cancel the Temporary Protection Status (TPS) on 5 January for some 5,530 Nicaraguans living in this country.

"They have roots in this country. They've been getting working and they have 275,000 citizen children".
Congress is the only body with the authority to create a path to permanent legal status for TPS holders. "That's unfair", she said of Homeland Security officials. People may gain permanent residency if they have married someone with citizenship or if they are sponsored by their employer.
The DHS has given the Nicaraguan migrants 14 months to leave the USA or change their immigration status.

"The only rationale for something like this is if people can't be sent back physically", the Center's Mark Krikorian said. "They are being subjected to possible deportations".
