DailyCaller: President Trump said in an address to Congress last Tuesday that illegal immigration threatens the job prospects of American citizens. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, however, will extend work permits for six months on Monday for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants from El Salvador who receive Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Instead of letting these work permits expire, USCIS Acting Director Lori Scialabbais is authorizing the automatic extension of them through Sept. 9, 2017.
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, told The Daily Caller: “TPS is a scam, but this notice seems routine — [U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services] can’t process the TPS renewals fast enough, so they’re extending the work permits so people whose renewals haven’t been processed yet don’t lose their work authorization in the interim.”
