Washington, DC – The National TPS Alliance announces plans for a major mobilization in Washington, DC tomorrow, February 12th to demand justice and a permanent solution for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders from all 13 countries. TPS families representing all thirteen countries designated with “TPS” will converge in Washington, DC to send a message to President Trump and the new Congress.
Jose Palma, TPS Holder from El Salvador and Spokesperson with the National TPS Alliance: “The TPS Alliance stands with all TPS holders and are fighting for a permanent solution for our families. Anything less than a permanent solution is a slap-in-the face to the decades we have given to this country, contributed and to the lives we have built” he concluded.
