Temporary Protected Status (TPS) 2020 News

In 2018, several countries lost their TPS (Temporary Protected Status) designation and the TPS community moved forward a lawsuit against wrongful termination of TPS to a CA circuit court, which ruled to temporarily block an immediate termination of TPS. On November 1, 2019, due to the CA circuit court’s indecision regarding TPS, six countries received additional but contingent time under TPS–until January 2021.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, TPS holders are essential laborers working in a country that does not honor their humanity. On September 14, 2020, the CA circuit court upheld the Trump Administration’s termination, continuing the legal battles, political whims, and human rights violations. In early December, a month before TPS was set to expire for several countries, USCIS published a Federal Register update extending TPS until October 2021.
