TPS protection extended until January 2020

Individuals from Sudan, Haiti and El Salvador who are currently living in Florida will likely be able to do so for the foreseeable future. The same is true of citizens of Nicaragua who are in the country as part of the temporary protected status (TPS) program. Although President Trump has sought to scale down the program, court battles are making that difficult at the current time.

The TPS program allows individuals from countries struck by a natural disaster or other strife to live in the United States. Some foreign nationals living in the United States with TPS status have been in the country for over 20 decades. President Trump was hoping to make changes that would require participants to return home or find another way to remain in the country legally. A court order required that plan to be abandoned for the time being.

Therefore, individuals with TPS status from El Salvador, Sudan and Haiti will be able to stay in America until January 2020 along with those from Nicaragua who have TPS status., The Trump administration wants permanent legal status for those in good standing, according to an official from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The official said that lawmakers should act instead of allowing courts to make rulings in this type of case.

An immigrant who wishes to stay in the United States may have several options for doing so. Those who don't qualify for protected status may be allowed to stay by making an asylum claim after entering. Individuals who are related to American citizens may also be allowed to stay in the country. An attorney may be able to help a person who wants legal status by working with immigration courts or otherwise vouching for a foreign national.
