REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – As the presidential adviser on Overseas Filipino Workers’ concerns, Philippine Vice President Jejomar Binay reportedly said he hopes the US will grant Temporary Protected Status to Filipino nationals in the US — especially those who were affected by Typhoon Yolanda.

According to a report by the Manila Times on Thursday, Binay said in his Fil-Am Friendship Day message: “This humanitarian act will further cement and deepen the friendship between Filipinos and Americans.”

“With the issuance of the TPS, our kababayans in the US, especially the undocumented Filipinos forced to work abroad because of their circumstances, can focus on providing for their families and rebuilding their lives without worrying about being removed from employment or deported back to the Philippines,” he said.

    Obama grant TPS only to Filipinos that who were affected by Typhoon Yolanda? This is the right way to help the Filipinos affected by Typhoon Yolanda. Don’t give TPS to Filipinos that was not affected by Typhoon Yolanda.

    Ang pinag-aabalahan ni Obama ay ang mga Central American illegals. Mga illegal na Latino ay hindi magtratrabaho,walang hilig magaral at habang buhay Democrat party voters. Dahil sa kahinahan nang education, sila balang araw ang victima nang mga Negrong americano para aanakan lamang. Ayon gaganda ang lahi nang mga itim sa America. Alam ni Obama na ang mga Pinoy ay masisipag, matatalino pero balimbing. Sa umpisa Democrat voters, then pag nalaman nila na part of their salary ay na pupunta sa mga tamad at malalaking katawan na umaasa sa libreng cellphone, foodstamps,free healthcare,& other welfare benefits, sila ay babaliktad at magiging Republican voters. Ang TPS ay racket nang Immigration lawyers, sasabihin malapit na, kulang kasi ang ibinigay mo at magdagdag kapa nang pera.
