REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The Philippines’ request for Temporary Protected Status is still alive according to Philippine Ambassador to the U.S. Jose Cuisia Jr.

The Philippine’s top envoy recently met with the Department of Homeland Security to check on the status of TPS.

Though the DHS is still deciding on the Philippines request for TPS, Cuisia said the DHS has offered to meet once more with leaders of the Filipino community in the next few days.

“It’s a complex issue and we have to respect that,” he said. “I think I should tell the Filipino community to rest assured I am pushing as much as we can in terms of getting a decision, but we also have to respect their position that they need to study this carefully, ’cause it’s not an easy matter.”

    Mr Ambassador, if you really want to help on the TPS and Amnesty for 1 Million Pinoy illegals, the correct approach is not Obama or DHS. You lobby with UN and find out who from the One world order/gov’t.(OWG), the person in-charge for illegal alien amnesty in America. The OWG agenda is Hispanization of America, tell them to include the Pinoy illegals on the One world order agenda. Get connection with La Raza, remind them that PH was one time a colony of Spain for 400 years and we understand,some speak, Spanish.If you can go deeper, you can also find out from the OWG who will be the next President of the PH. From there, you know how to prepare yourself and become the future Foreign Affair Minister on the next PH Presidency. Obama knew that giving amnesty to Hispanic illegals will destroy his blood brother the American black, but he has no choice,the One world Gov’t made him President and re-elected him again.

    When the mayor of tacloban comes and tells you, hey! we are ready for the coming of pope in january and your donation was well spent, that means he doesnt need tps but your money, keep on donating. People are still struggling and voila! The koreans are still around doing their thing up to now!!!! thanks a lot! Meanwhile, lacson’s 8,000 page masterpiece has yet to come and he is resigning booo…. Of course the final meeting with dhs is a confirmation that tps is officially dead, hopefully am wrong.
