New reports have surfaced showing how White House Chief of Staff John Kelly tried unsuccessfully to pressure acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke to cancel the special immigration status of more than 50,000 Hondurans living in the United States. The Washington Post reports Kelly called Duke and tried to convince her to cancel the Hondurans’ temporary protected status, known as TPS. Duke refused, although she did announce the cancellation of the temporary protected status for 2,500 Nicaraguans.
