September 20

On September 20th, the Secretary of Homeland Security signed an order to extend the Temporary Protected Status for Venezuelans for 18 months. The expansion provides individuals who arrived in the United States on or after July 31, 2023, safety from removal, as well as authorization to work. The DHS decision only worsens existing issues present at the border. Rather than working to control the overcrowded borders, the Biden Administration continues to make it easy for illegal immigrants to come into and remain in the United States.
