BREAKING NEWS: Syrians to Be Granted Temporary Protected Status

Rate this Entry

From DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano:



"In light of the deteriorating conditions in Syria, I am announcing that DHS will be designating Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Syrians currently present in the United States. Conditions in Syria have worsened to the point where Syrian nationals already in the United States would face serious threats to their personal safety if they were to return to their home country. Early next week, the Department will publish a notice in the Federal Register that will provide further guidance about TPS eligibility requirements and registration procedures. All applicants must undergo full background checks and while Syrians in the United States are encouraged to apply, they should not submit their applications before the notice is published."



This should allow Syrians - whether in legal status here or not - to have a legal status and employment authorization in the US until returning to Syria is safe. I'll sum up the details when the notice in the Federal Register is announced.

    More like until the "T"PS officially ends (which may never happen).
