Victory: Auto-Extension of TPS for 18- Months For Countries of El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Nepal, Haiti, & Sudan
(Washington DC) Today the Department of Homeland Security issued an Unpublished Document announcing the auto-extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan. All Employment Authorization Documents and protections from deportation have been extended until June 30, 2024.
“Tonight, hundreds of thousands of families who have lived in limbo for so long can rest a little easier.” said Cristina Morales, TPS Holder, Plaintiff in Ramos v. Mayorkas and member of the National TPS Alliance. “The Biden administration acted to extend TPS now because of the strength of our community’s voice demanding greater protection.”
This news comes before November 30th, where the Biden administration would have likely have been required to issue an auto extension in compliance with an injunction from the Ramos v. Mayorkas Lawsuit.
“Although small, this news is still a victory nonetheless. It is also a direct result of TPS migrant families who organized and fought back, those who for years have marched the streets of Washington DC and the halls of congress to make their voices heard. said Concepcion Morales, TPS Holder and member of the National TPS Alliance. “We are committed to continue our fight, until we win permanent residency and equal rights for our migrant communities.”
The National TPS Alliance is a grassroots immigrant rights organization of over 50 committees nationwide, advocating for the permanent residency of more than 400,000 beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
