TPS Action

  • Massachusetts State House 24 Beacon Street Boston, MA, 02133 United States (map)

Around the first week of May, the current Administration, through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will consider whether to extend or eliminate designations of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Honduras. More than sixty thousand people from Honduras are protected under TPS. 

Honduras is not ready to receive and reintegrate immigrants that are being deported from the US and other countries like México. Every year one hundred thousand Hondurans leave their country due to the level of extreme violence they confront daily. Additionally this year, the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, declared that Honduras is the most poor country in Latin America displacing Haiti.

According to Amnesty International, the level of insecurity and violence in Honduras has remained high. Widespread impunity continues to undermine public trust in the authorities and the justice system. Protests in the aftermath of the presidential election were brutally repressed by security forces. Honduras remains one of the most dangerous countries in the Americas region for human rights defenders.
