USCIS published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the automatic extension of #TemporaryProtectedStatus (TPS) documentation for beneficiaries under the TPS designations for Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador until January 2, 2020, in order to ensure continued compliance with the preliminary injunction in #RamosvNielsen, which required the government to maintain #TPS for #immigrants from these countries.

Temporary protected status (also called “TPS“) is a temporary status given to eligible nationals of designated countries who are present in the United States. The status, afforded to nationals from some countries affected by armed conflict or natural disaster, allows persons to live and work in the United States for limited times. Currently, persons from ten countries-Haiti, ElSalvador, Syria, Nepal, Honduras, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Nicaragua; and South Sudan—have temporary protected status. About 320,000 people have TPS as of 2017, the majority from El Salvador (195,000), Honduras (57,000), and Haiti (46,000).
