WASHINGTON— Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke has determined that Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is no longer necessary for nationals of Nicaragua and will terminate the designation on January 5, 2019. She has also announced that more information is needed to determine the necessity of the TPS designation for eligible nationals of Honduras, and thus extended the TPS designation until July 5, 2018. Based on the information available, it is possible that TPS designation for Honduras will be terminated after the 6-month extension.
