Former New York State Assembly Member Pamela Harris is seen leaving the Federal Courthouse in Brooklyn on Tuesday. The 57yr old former Lawmaker appeared before United States Magistrate Judge Robert M. Levy, where she plead Guilty to Two Counts of Wire Fraud, One Count of Making False Statements to the Federal Emergency Management Administration and One Count of Witness Tampering.Former New York State Assembly Member Pamela Harris is seen leaving the Federal Courthouse in Brooklyn after pleading Guilty to Corruption charges, including witness tampering, on Tuesday June 12, 2018.

Pamelas’ schemes netted her tens of thousands of dollars from Government and City Agencies that she was not entitled to. In one instance, Pamela brazenly – and falsely –  claimed to FEMA that she was forced out of her Coney Island home in Brooklyn due to damage done by Hurricane Sandy. That claim netted her almost $25,000.

As part of her Guilty Plea, Pamela was forced to admit that she pressured witnesses to lie to the FBI, when Agents were conducting a Grand Jury Investigation into her fraudulent schemes. Upon Sentencing, Pamela faces up to 30 years imprisonment for the false statements she made to FEMA, as well as up to 20 years for each of the Wire Fraud and Witness Tampering charges.Former New York State Assembly Member Pamela Harris is seen leaving the Federal Courthouse in Brooklyn after pleading Guilty to Corruption charges, including witness tampering, on Tuesday June 12, 2018.

In a Media Release from the U.S Department of Homeland Security, Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen today announced that she was ending the Temporary Protected Status for the Country of Honduras. Honduras was bestowed with the TPS designation in 1999 after the devastation wrought upon them by Hurricane Mitch in 1998.

The Media Release indicated that conditions in Honduras since the Hurricane have ‘Notably Improved’, and further stated that the Country has made ‘Substantial progress in post hurricane recovery and reconstruction’ since conditions were last reviewed in October of 2016. The effective date of the termination of the TPS, which Secretary Nielsen states is required under the Immigration and Nationality Act, will be January 5, 2020.

This eighteen month delay is designed to allow for an ‘orderly transition’, providing Hondurans residing in the United States and currently benefitting from the TPS time to arrange for their departure back to Honduras, or to ‘seek an alternative lawful immigration status in the United States, if eligible’. According to the Release, this delay will also allow the Government of Honduras to ‘prepare for the return and reintegration of its’ citizens’.

Honduran citizens with current TPS registrations will be required to re-apply for both the TPS and Employment Authorization Documents in order to continue to live and work in the United States until January 5, 2020. Information relevant to the TPS re-registration period will be posted in a Federal Register Notice, and affected individuals are being asked not to submit re-registration applications until the Notice appears in the Federal Register.
