President Trump’s administration took a step toward ending legal status for hundreds of thousands of….
immigrants previously granted emergency permission to live in the U.S also know as TPS [Temporary Protected Status] according to Reports.
SECRETARY OF STATE: Rex Tillerson informed the Department of Homeland Security that crises in Haiti and certain Central American countries have abated, a key factor in determining whether individuals from those nations are eligible to live and work in the U.S.
DETERMINATION: could lead DHS to revoke their Temporary Protected Status at a review mandated by federal law. State Department spokesperson told reporters “No decisions have been announced regarding TPS for nationals of Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, or Nicaragua.” “We have no comments on internal and interagency deliberation. I would refer you to DHS for additional information.”
DHS: spokesman Tyler Houlton said regarding the Monday renewal deadline. “No decision has been made,”
TPS: The Secretary of Homeland Security may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately. USCIS may grant TPS to eligible nationals of certain countries (or parts of countries), who are already in the United States. Eligible individuals without nationality who last resided in the designated country may also be granted TPS.
The Secretary may designate a country for TPS due to the following temporary conditions in the country:
- Ongoing armed conflict (such as civil war)
- An environmental disaster (such as earthquake or hurricane), or an epidemic
- Other extraordinary and temporary conditions
During a designated period, individuals who are TPS beneficiaries or who are found preliminarily eligible for TPS upon initial review of their cases (prima facieeligible):
- Are not removable from the United States
- Can obtain an employment authorization document (EAD)
- May be granted travel authorization
Once granted TPS, an individual also cannot be detained by DHS on the basis of his or her immigration status in the United States.
TPS is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status or give any other immigration status. However, registration for TPS does not prevent you from:
- Applying for nonimmigrant status
- Filing for adjustment of status based on an immigrant petition
- Applying for any other immigration benefit or protection for which you may be eligible
