Views: Jonathan Hoffman and Dhs Spokesman

views: As with many issues, there were a variety of views inside the administration on a policy, according to Toronto Star. The Acting Secretary took those views and advice on the path forward for TPS and made her decision based on the law, said Jonathan Hoffman, the DHS spokesman, referring to a form of provisional residency called Temporary Protected Status. Duke refused to reverse her decision and was angered by what she felt was a politically driven intrusion by Kelly and Tom Bossert, the White House homeland security adviser, who also called her about the matter, according to officials with knowledge of Monday's events, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. He added that it was also perfectly normal for them to discuss the issue before she had reached a decision. By extending the residency permits of the Hondurans, Kelly told her that the TPS decision keeps getting kicked down the road and that the additional delay prevents our wider strategic goal on immigration, the White House official said. A White House official confirmed the calls to Duke on Monday, but said Kelly's frustration had to do with Duke's lack of decisiveness. ( As reported in the news.
