TPS EXTENDED UNTIL OCTOBER 2021!!
On December 7, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security announced the extension of Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for beneficiaries from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, Sudan, Honduras, and Nepal. Originally set to end in January 2021, TPS will now be extended to October 4, 2021 allowing TPS holders to continue legally living and working in the U.S. without fear of being deported.
TPS was put in place to help those whose home countries are experiencing a temporary extraordinary event, such as natural disaster or armed civil wars. With Hurricanes Eta and Iota recently devastating Central American countries, including Honduras and El Salvador, the extension put in place is a great relief to TPS beneficiaries.
It is hoped the Biden administration will help pass a law to enable TPS beneficiaries to become legal permanent residents, and eventually, US citizens. We will continue to provide updates and information relating to any important changes to our immigration law.
