About "Venezuela TPS"
Summary: The ongoing political, economic and human rights crisis in Venezuela motivates the introduction of a bill in Congress to grant TPS (Temporary Protected Status) to Venezuelans in the U.S. TPS allows nationals of the protected country to stay even if their visas have expired or even if they are here illegally, for a specific duration of time, to allow them refuge from the crisis afflicting their homeland. This has been done in the past with other countries like Haiti, Liberia and El Salvador due to natural disasters or wars. TPS recipients can stay, live and work in the US without fear of deportation until TPS time period expires. The Negative view is that TPS will never expire. t has proven immensely difficult to ever end a TPS program once it gets started. TPS keeps getting extended indefinitely long after the original crisis is over, because the people here “temporarily” while “fleeing an emergency” discover that they really don’t want to go home when the emergency is over. It becomes simply another avenue of expanding immigration in general under the guise of never-ending or phony emergencies. In addition, those truly fleeing for their lives can flee to neighboring countries where the US is sponsoring refugee camps and donating massive amounts of foreign aid. Venezuelans truly at risk don’t have to flee to the US a thousand miles away when the nearest point of safety is in walking distance just across the border.
This brief offers 2 alternative theories, which obviously contradict each other, but they give alternative reasons to vote Negative no matter which one the Judge believes. In one case, things in Venezuela are bad, so we shouldn’t grant TPS because it will allow opponents of the regime to escape to the US and they won’t foment the revolution Venezuela desperately needs. The misery will be prolonged forever with an AFF ballot. In the other case, Venezuela is doing fine, there is no humanitarian crisis, so there is no need for TPS at all. If there are any economic problems in Venezuela, they’re caused by economic sanctions, and a simple Minor Repair could lift those and solve easily.
