What It Means To Obtain Temporary Protected Status In The United States
Temporary Protected Status (TPS) allows certain foreign-born persons in the United States to receive temporary protection from deportation and permission to work due to dangerous conditions in their home countries, such as civil war, a health epidemic or a natural disaster.Although TPS does not lead to a green card or any other immigration status, it allows people to temporarily live and work in the United States – a benefit that should not be understated. If, while on TPS, a person becomes eligible – through marriage, employment or otherwise – for immigrant status, that person may apply for the new immigration benefit.The Department of Homeland Security designates which countries qualify for TPS, the time period for which the protection is granted, and the dates and procedures for applying.
Recently, TPS designations have changed. It is important to contact an experienced immigration lawyer to understand what these changes are and how they may affect you.
