Translating the buzzwords to English, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has extended Temporary Protected Status to Nicaraguans. First, I guess what caught my eye was USCIS. What happened to INS? Anyway, this is an 18 month extension for those that already have TPS.
There are approximately 3,500 nationals of Nicaragua (and people having no nationality who last habitually resided in Nicaragua) who are eligible for reregistration. TPS does not apply to Nicaraguan nationals who entered the United States after Dec. 30, 1998.
See the announcement
for further details.
