US Congress Considers TPS for Pakistan (but not Guatemala)

US Congressman Al Green (D-Texas) introduced a new bill yesterday to grant TPS to Pakistan following the dramatic floods that struck that country this summer.  While we certainly support the bill (indeed, the link above is to our sister blog, which dedicated to the Pakistani TPS request), we have to express our disappointment that the Guatemalan request has not seen the same kind of Congressional support.

The only Congressional action in support of Guatemala’s request has been House Resolution 1462, which was introduced in June and has been languishing in silence since July. The resolution is quite different from today’s bill, in that it is merely an expression of support for the people of Guatemala and not an actual law granting TPS.  It is incredible that our Congress was unable to pass even this meek resolution, and that it has stood by so silently with no action in support of Guatemala.

    So this is our reality Obama’s administration will Not grant the TPS for guatemalans….

  2. efra Says:

    Of course we already knew that the USA do not do anything for Guatemalan people since we don’t have any nuclear weapons we do not represent any dangerous for them. we are a hard workers we no representation neither from the Guatemalan government. They infect with std some of our people they only say sorry and nobody did anything about it. But thank you at lease you have us inform but with no hope.

  3. Katrina Says:

    Patrick, are you calling Washington to see what the Administration will do? It is a good time to push hard for TPS for Guatemalans. This bill for Pakistan is not a bad sign, and it probably won’t pass. Congress is not going to give TPS to anyone right now, but the Administration easily could.

  4. Katrina Says:

    Also, the White House is saying in press statements about the DREAM Act that it is willing to do “whatever we can” for immigration reform. We should all tell them that TPS is something they CAN do, as it doesn’t need the support of Congress, and they have extended TPS for Salvadorans, Hondorans and Nicaraguans this summer, so they should treat Guatemalans equally.

  5. Walter Says:

    I just have to say i do agree with everything Efra said….btw i heard they want to summit a petition to get TPS for mexicans this was according to La Opinion…but i dont think Obama’s administration will grant TPS for mexicans or guatemalans….but i hope the US Senate passes the Dream Act next week…

  6. Rebecca Says:

    I’m sure population count has a lot to do with these decisions. Consider that Guatemalans are estimated to be the 3rd highest undocumented immigrant group (4% of total) after El Salvador (5%) and Mexico (62%). 4th and 5th on the list are Honduras (3%) and the Phillippines (2%).

    I didn’t see Pakistan represented in the list at all (this from a 2009 DHS report

    I really hope the administration will make a determination after the DREAM act vote and before congress starts up again. Otherwise, politics is always the first excuse. UGH.

  7. Katrina Says:

    Aqui es el email de una persona de la Casa Blanca que dice que estan haciendo “todo lo posible” para una reforma migratoria (en el contexto del DREAM Act):

    Stephanie Valencia
    Associate Director
    White House Office of Public Engagement

    Creo que vale la pena contactarla y pedir que dan TPS a Guatemaltecos porque es bajo su autoridad, porque le han dado una extension de TPS a Salvador, Honduras y Nicaragua este mismo aNo, pues hay que tratar la gente con igualdad. Ademas, como es obvio, es un deber moral despues de todo que ha pasado, y el TPS puede ayudar a establecer mas seguridad a la region.

    As USA always takingcare for all countries in different ways.So now this is the time for takingcare of Pakistani people who lost relatives + some very close relative. This is the time to pass TPS issue for PAKISTAN. sO people will relex. and we feel ‘AMERICA’ is real friend of PAKISTAN and PAKISTANI PEAPLE . I hope president and congress will consider and pass the bill as soon as possible. Thanks SYED

  9. Katrina Says:

    Syed I agree, and hope that it is granted for both countries. We don’t have any influence here but we are sorry for your losses.
