Department of Homeland Security Rescinds Termination of TPS Status

More than 300,000 immigrants have permission to live and work in our country today through a form of humanitarian relief called Temporary Protected Status (TPS). TPS has been granted to people from countries embroiled in violent conflict or suffering from a natural disaster, since 1990, so that they will not be returned to harm’s way.

In 2018, the Department of Homeland Security announced the termination of Temporary Protected Status for numerous countries. This week, the Department of Homeland Security rescinded the termination of TPS status for El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, and Nicaragua. Find out more here.
