El Estatus de Protección Temporal, o TPS, es otorgado por el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional. Permite a las personas de varios países como Nicaragua, El Salvador y Haití vivir en los Estados Unidos temporalmente como un "refugio seguro". A finales de 2017, la administración Trump anunció la terminación del programa para numerosos países; sin embargo en octubre, un juez federal de California pospuso la decisión pendiente de más revisiones por los tribunales. Nuestra reportera Karina González visitó con una beneficiaria de TPS de Nicaragua, cuyo estatus de protección temporal debía terminar el 5 de enero.

Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, is designated by the Department of Homeland Security. It allows people from various countries to live in the U.S. as a temporary “safe haven.” In late 2017, the Trump Administration announced it would terminate the program for four countries; however, in October, a federal judge in California put those plans on hold until there is further review by the courts. KUNR Reporter Karina Gonzalez visited a TPS holder from Nicaragua, whose status was originally set to terminate Saturday.

Según los últimos datos de los Servicios de Inmigración de los Estados Unidos, hay más de 2,500 (dos mil quinientos) beneficiarios de DACA viviendo en el norte de Nevada y en el área rural de Nevada. Desde el comienzo, el programa, ha protegido a sus beneficiarios contra la deportación. Pero desde el año pasado, las personas indocumentadas que fueron traídas a los Estados Unidos cuando eran niños han estado viviendo en un limbo legislativo, después de que la Administración del Presidente Donald Trump rescindiera el programa. Sin embargo algunos están haciendo todo lo posible para seguir adelante a pesar de la incertidumbre, como aquellos que comenzaron su negocio propio. Nuestra reportera Karina Gonzalez informa.

According to the latest data from U.S. Immigration Services, there are more than 2,500 DACA recipients living in Northern and rural Nevada. Since its inception, the program has shielded recipients from deportation. But over the past year, the undocumented individuals who were brought to the U.S. as children have been living in legislative limbo after the Trump Administration rescinded the program. Yet some are doing their best to move forward despite the uncertainty, such as those who have started their own businesses. KUNR’s Karina Gonzalez has the story.

President Donald Trump is calling for an end to “chain migration” along with tighter legal immigration control, but what exactly does that term mean? The misconception is that any immigrant can bring as many family members as they would like when they come to the United States. In actuality, the process is much lengthier, in some cases taking up to 23 years, and is limited to certain family members. Our reporter, Camille Stuyvesant spoke with immigration attorney Sylvia Ontaneda-Bernales to break down 'chain migration.'

When President Donald Trump ordered an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, last fall, he told Congress to pass a replacement by March 5, 2018. That did not happen and now those protected by the program could soon be eligible for deportation.
