Here are some facts about the 300,000 immigrants with TPS from Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Honduras that prompted Trump's "shithole" comments and who the president deems less worthy than immigrants from white countries like Norway.
The immigrant TPS holders from "shithole" countries like Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti and El Salvador are here legally, pay taxes and contribute to our communities and economy — many of whom are construction supervisors and home health care professionals who aren’t easily replaced.
Currently, many immigrant TPS holders from "shithole" countries are working in the construction industry helping the recovery efforts in Florida and Houston following the hurricanes.
Immigrant TPS holders from "shithole" countries are parents to nearly 275,000 U.S. citizen children and there is no plan to address the break up of these families.
250,000 immigrant TPS holders from "shithole" countries work -- mostly in construction and in home health care. They work really really hard, an average 40-45 hours per week.
The forced deportation of immigrant TPS holders from "shithole" countries would cost employers nearly $1 billion in immediate turnover costs. It would cost the U.S. an estimated $164 billion in Gross Domestic Product.
30% of immigrant TPS holders from "shithole" countries are homeowners. Forcibly removing them from this country will destabilize U.S. housing markets as 60,000 mortgages are dumped at the same time.
Immigrant TPS holders from "shithole" countries are thoroughly vetted. All immigrant TPS holders living in the United States have passed a background check at least every 18 months.
