TPS extension granted to immigrants from certain countries living in US


LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Department of Homeland Security announced it will extend protections for thousands of immigrants.

Temporary Protected Status will be extended for those living in the U.S. who are from El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Nepal, Sudan and Nicaragua until Oct. 2021.

Great news! Individuals with Temporary Protected Status from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan are now safe from the threat of deportation through October 2021. In the meantime, we must pass the #DREAMandPromise Act to provide a pathway to citizenship.

Under the extension, the individuals impacted will be able to continue to legally live and work in the U.S. without facing deportation.

TPS allows foreigners to live in the U.S. when their home country experiences a natural disaster or armed conflict.
