Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is an interim migration status bestowed on the nationals of a specific set of countries experiencing troubling times that make it challenging or unsafe for their citizens' deportation. The immigration status has been a humane solution for the hundreds of thousands of migrants who cannot return to their homeland safely, whether due to an armed conflict, environmental disasters, or any unfortunate mishap, but TPS offers them secure citizenship under the U.S. migration policy. A February 16, 2022, survey report shows that around 354,625 individuals are living in the United States with a Temporary Protected Status. In addition, approx. 274,820 people are eligible for TPS under five designations, as announced by Joe Biden. TPS is a temporary benefit which does not lead to the lawful permanent resident status or any other immigration status.
The Secretary of Homeland might designate a foreign country for TPS due to certain unavoidable circumstances,
- Ongoing armed conflict
- Natural catastrophe
- Other temporary or extraordinary conditions
- The TPS beneficiaries are eligible for TPS upon initial review of their cases,
- They are not removable from the U.S.
- They can obtain an Employment Authorization Document (EAD)
- May have Travel Authorization Permit
