Temporary Protected Status

Temporary Protected Status for Haitians

As Haiti continues to deal with economic hardship it is mistake to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians. Many Haitians who have come to the US and have been able to work in United States. There is an estimated 60,000 Haitians who are currently part of this program.  Haiti is still devastated from the earthquake of 2010 and the need for the US to help the most vulnerable is more urgent than ever.  The United States has always been a nation of immigrants.  The law suit filed by Ira Kaurzban and the National Immigration  Project off the National Lawyer's Guild in the Eastern District of New  York challenging the administration's  termination of TPS for Haitians is a step in the right direction.

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.
