2. BREAKING: DHS Designates Syria for Temporary Protected Status

In a press release, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano announced that the Department of Homeland Security designated Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Syrians currently present in the United States.  Napolitano cited “deteriorating conditions in Syria” as the impetus for the designation asserting that “Syrian nationals already in the United States would face serious threats to their personal safety if they were to return to their home country.”  TPS is a temporary immigration status granted to nationals of designated countries as part of the US Immigration Act of 1990.  During the period for which a country has been designated under the TPS program, the registrants are allowed to remain in the United States and obtain work authorization and may not be deported unless they commit certain crimes.  TPS does not lead to permanent residence status in the US.

 

In our next issue, we will provide details on the rules for TPS.
