Breaking News: The Federal Register Announces 15 Months TPS Extension
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 10, 2021
MIAMI, FL - Today, Friday, September 10, 2021, the Federal Register has published an immediate 15-month extension for the beneficiaries of the following countries: El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, Nepal, and Sudan. This decision is in direct correlation with the current Ramos V. Mayorkas lawsuit. The plaintiffs, in this case, represent the TPS families who have been in legal limbo since before the Biden Administration took office. The Department of Homeland Security will automatically extend the Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) for the beneficiaries already approved for Temporary Protected Status until December 31, 2022.
Marleine Bastien, Executive Director of Family Action Network Movement, said, “We welcome this news and thank the Biden Administration for this extension which will bring temporary relief to so many contributing immigrants. This is a good step forward. However, it is not enough. Many of these families have been living in the United States for more than two decades. They deserve to stay in this country under a permanent solution. That is why we at FANM are calling on our elected officials to pass the Budget Reconciliation Bill, which includes a pathway to citizenship for TPS, DACA, Farmworkers, and Essential Workers. Congress has promised long-overdue immigration reform. It is time for them to act! ”
Family Action Network Movement (FANM) is a private not-for-profit organization dedicated to the social, economic, financial and political empowerment of low to moderate-income families.
