More Legislative Support for Guatemalan TPS

Last week, we posted a brief note about reported Congressional support for the Guatemalan TPS application.  That initial report actually related to a letter of support submitted by California Assemblymember Norma Torres, and we hope to have a copy of her letter up on here for you soon.

In the meantime, one of our commenters, Sergio, posted a link to a report of additional legislative support.  We spent some time tracking the news down, and can happily confirm the news: members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus signed onto a letter to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, expressing their support for the Guatemalan TPS application. As with the earlier letter, we are working on getting a copy of the letter posted.

We have also placed requests for copies of the letters submitted by Nevada Assemblymembers Mo Denis and Ruben Kihuen, and will update everyone here as soon as we hear something back.


UPDATE: We got a hold of someone at the Hispanic Congressional Caucus and they confirmed that they did submit a letter in support of TPS, but informed us that they do not release the letters to the public. So, it looks like we’re going to have a hard time getting a copy of that letter to share with you all.

    that’s really good news…I don’t want to be or sound impatient BUT how much time are we looking at to see a respond from the DHS if the TPS whether gets granted or not?

  2. Patrick Kolasinski Says:

    The initial estimated time given by the Guatemalan Foreign Ministry was 30 to 45 days after their submission of the request. If that is accurate, we should be hearing back soon.

    Of course, that time estimate didn’t come from the Obama administration, so it may be slightly off. My hope is that the recent spate of legislative support is a sign that we’re getting closer to a positive decision.
