President Trump’s decision to end the “temporary protected status” of some Haitian refugees brought to the U.S. after the 2010 earthquake and send them back to their homeland has drawn the ire of Democratic Philadelphia Mayor James Kenney.
And he’s making it personal.
“This country used to be a country of compassion and empathy,” Kenney said during a Wednesday press conference. “It is now a country of anger and divisiveness.”
Not surprisingly, Kenney’s office also opposes the Trump administration’s plans to withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities.
“There is no compassion whatsoever in the White House. I’m just beside myself with sadness because our president is a bully, our president is a punk, and he just doesn’t get it,” Kenney said, adding, “I don’t know where he was raised, but his family didn’t do a good job raising that guy.”
Because every Third Worlder deserves a home in the United States, apparently, even if their overall presence increases crime, drains the welfare system, and lowers the average wages of American citizens.
But most of them vote Democrat, so it’s important to maintain priorities.
Temporary Protective Status, or TPS, was created in 1990 to allow people affected by war or natural disaster to work and live in the U.S. Currently, 435,000 are here as a result of the program, according to NBC10.
People covered under TPS will have a year and a half to return to their country of origin under the new White House directive.
