Trump Administration Ends Temporary Protection for Haitians

The Obama administration renewed the protections for Haitians several times, after determining that conditions in Haiti remained precarious. But the Trump administration, which has sought greater controls on immigration, has said that the program, which was intended to provide only temporary relief, has turned into a permanent benefit for tens of thousands of people.In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security said that after meeting with Haitian government officials and Haitian communities in the United States, it had decided to let the protections end.“Since the 2010 earthquake, the number of displaced people in Haiti has decreased by 97 percent,” the statement said. “Significant steps have been taken to improve the stability and quality of life for Haitian citizens, and Haiti is able to safely receive traditional levels of returned citizens.”The protection for Haitians was most recently extended in May, by John F. Kelly, the Homeland Security secretary at the time. He allowed only a six-month extension, a shorter one than is typical, saying that the Haitians “need to start thinking about returning.”The decision on Monday by Elaine Duke, the acting secretary, set a termination date of July 2019 to give people time to make arrangements to leave.About 320,000 foreigners now benefit from the Temporary Protected Status program, which was signed into law by President George Bush in 1990.The largest group of beneficiaries, nearly 200,000 people, are from El Salvador. The Department of Homeland Security is scheduled to announce next month whether it will rescind or renew protection for that country, which is plagued with gang violence and high unemployment. The protection applies to Salvadorans who were in the United States without permission on Feb. 13, 2001, and was granted following deadly earthquakes in their home country.Continue reading the main storyLast month, Ms. Duke ended protections for about 2,500 Nicaraguans […]

An exhaustive, on-the-ground investigation presented in The Times Magazine reveals that the U.S.-led coalition is killing far more Iraqi civilians than previously acknowledged in its “precision” air campaign against the Islamic State — 31 times more, in fact. At the same time, Iraq is trying to come to grips with the number of those killed by the Islamic State. At least 70 mass graves have been found. Our new Baghdad bureau chief shares the story of an Iraqi shepherd left to bury the bodies of his neighbors. Neighboring Iran continues to pick up the pieces after suffering the world’s most deadly earthquake this year. Continue reading the main story ____ Photo Credit Eve Edelheit for The New York Times 8.

Wealth Matters: Tax Cuts for Small-Business Owners? It’s Complicated

In other words, the House bill may seem like a tax cut for small businesses, but it is not likely to bring much relief to many of those owners, and it is certainly not comparable to what was proposed for large corporations. And some professions, like consultants, lawyers, doctors and other professional services companies, are not even eligible for the lower pass-through rate.“What’s really going to happen is, people are going to change their behavior based on this tax act,” Mr. Reitmeyer said, like rethinking their business tax structure.The House bill says that up to 30 percent of business income can be taxed at the lower 25 percent rate, with the rest at the personal income tax rate. At the highest level, this is a blended tax rate of 35.22 percent, at least for businesses that qualify. That is a far cry from the 20 percent proposed for corporations.The Senate proposal, which is wending its way through the committee process, offers the possibility of a deduction of business income of up to 17.4 percent. But it still has hurdles: This week, it lost one Republican vote, when Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin opposed the different treatment for corporations and pass-through entities.What becomes of the two bills when they get reconciled is going to determine whether small-business owners will pay less in taxes. But it will also determine what resources they will have to invest in their businesses and still maintain their lifestyles.The savviest business owners will begin by calling a sophisticated accountant or tax lawyer […]
