The U.S. reportedly will not grant temporary protected status to people from the Bahamas displaced by Hurricane Dorian. A Trump administration official told NBC News about the decision Wednesday, two days after acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan said the White House was considering whether to do so. President Trump on Monday had also said he was considering extending temporary protected status, but, at the same time, he expressed wariness about immigration from the Caribbean nation. Bahamians reportedly can still come to the U.S. temporarily, provided they are carrying the correct travel documents, but they will reportedly not be granted work permits.
