The US government should grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to nationals from The Philippines

The pictures and stories of devastation from The  Philippines after Super Typhoon Haiyan landed in mid November are truly heart wrenching. Much like after the devastation of the earthquake in Haiti, (where Temporary Protected Status was granted to Haitians) it is important for the US government  to offer support to nationals of The Philippines. Out of  utter destruction from this natural catastrophe,   there is an opportunity for concrete action. The government of the Philippines has formally requested Temporary Protected Status. There are two major benefits to Filipinos in the United States if Temporary Protected Status is granted.  Generally both documented and undocumented Filipinos would be eligible to apply for Temporary Protection Status. In addition, they would be eligible to apply for work authorization.   There are always statutory requirements that generally do not allow for Filipinos with criminal records (either a felony conviction or 2 or more misdemeanor convictions) who would be eligible for Temporary Protected Status. It is always best to consult with an immigration attorney. Although nothing  can truly make up for the misery and hardship inflicted by Super Typhoon Haiyan, hopefully the U.S. government will grant Temporary Protected Status to Filipinos.
