Act Now: Tell Congress to Protect TPS Holders

Legislation in the House and Senate would provide TPS and DED holders with the protections they need to continue building their lives and enriching our communities.

Since August 2017, President Trump has repeatedly cancelled and refused to renew protections for foreign nationals living in the United States with Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure. These programs allow people who are unable to safely return home due to violence, war, and natural disasters to live and work in the United States. Eliminating their protections has left hundreds of thousands of individuals, many of whom have lived in the United States for decades, vulnerable to losing their livelihoods, being separated from their families, and being deported to countries that are unsafe.
