The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will decide by Thursday whether it will extend temporary legal protections to approximately 250 Somalis who claimed to have sought refuge in the United States, including some who have been living in this country for nearly three decades. A majority of those who would be affected live in Minnesota, which is home to the nation’s largest concentration of Somali Muslim invaders.
Star Tribune The special designation for Somalia was first approved by President George H.W. Bush in 1991 in response to a brutal civil war, and has since been extended 22 times under multiple presidents. Known as Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, the designation has shielded many Somalis from deportation and enabled them to build families and businesses here.

Ending the program will force those migrant families into an agonizing decision: leave the country or risk becoming illegal immigrants facing deportation.
“Terminating TPS would essentially be a death sentence” for Somalis forced to return, said Mustafa Jumale, co-founder of the Black Immigrant Collective, an advocacy group for black immigrants and their families, at a news conference Tuesday. “Given the option of going back to face certain violence, many would choose to become undocumented.”
It is widely expected that the Trump administration will rescind Somalia’s special status, based on the president’s past comments about Somali refugees and his increasingly hard-line stance on immigration. Shortly before the 2016 election, Trump singled out Somalis during a trip to Minnesota, saying large numbers of Somali refugees were coming in to the state without proper vetting and were spreading extremist views.
The Department of Homeland Security has already revoked temporary protected status for hundreds of thousands of immigrants from seven countries, including El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Liberia, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan. All of these immigrant groups were given more than a year to leave.
According to RefugeeResettlementWatch, all previous administrations—Republican and Democrat—are at fault for creating this ‘crisis’ as each subsequent one extended the 18-month TPS designation over and over again.
In order for those here on TPS, the temporary refugees were supposed to have been in the country (usually they were here illegally) before TPS was designated for their country. It is not an on-going opportunity for certain immigrants to get in and then say—gee I want to apply for TPS.
“Somalia is still a conflict-ridden area,” said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. “For people who are returning and have not built strong ties, they easily become vulnerable to attacks by terrorist groups.”
If the Department of Homeland Security rescinds temporary protected status for Somalia, the protections now in effect would expire on Sept. 17.

The TPS program was designed to help people from countries wracked by armed conflicts, natural disasters and other forms of civil strife in their home countries.
But it has come under harsh scrutiny from members of the Trump administration, who have argued that it was never meant to be a long-term solution for immigrants coming to this country. The Department of Homeland Security has already revoked temporary protected status for hundreds of thousands of immigrants from seven countries, including El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Liberia, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan. All of these immigrant groups were given more than a year to leave.
“If you were betting, then you would bet that this administration will terminate TPS” for Somalia, said John Keller, executive director of the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota.
