The decision came from Department of Homeland Security acting secretary Elaine Duke, who the Washington Post reports found the bleak situation wrought by Hurricane Mitch wasn't a factor in Nicaragua anymore.
But supporters of the program say Nicaraguan TPS holders have deep roots in the community and have been in the country for decades.
According to Monday's announcement, Nicaraguans will have until January 5, 2019, to leave the United States or change their residency status.
