QUID PRO QUO
Honduras is following Spain’s lead and pulling its troops out of Iraq. In light of this decision, it would seem appropriate to reassess our extension of “temporary protected status” for an estimated 87,000 Honduran illegal aliens in the United States. This status was originally granted because the damage to Honduras’ infrastructure from Hurricane Mitch in 1998 was thought to be such that returning their illegals would present a hardship to the country. Well, their airports should be working again now, so it’s time for the illegals to go home.
