Miami residents hoping TPS legislation passes Senate

Many residents of Miami and Florida are aware of Temporary Protected Status for some groups of immigrants. Some, in fact, are under this immigration status themselves. TPS immigrants are currently living in the U.S. wondering how much longer they will be able to stay in the U.S. legally.

Temporary Protected Status was initially given to immigrants from many countries including El Salvador, Haiti, Nepal, Nicaragua, Sudan, among others. The status is given to immigrants who are not able to return home because of war, an environmental disaster or other temporary conditions. The TPS status is a temporary status and does not lead to permanent resident status on its own. Those whose parents came to the U.S. under the TPS status are referred to as DREAMers, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. This group has been the target of many legislative and presidential actions over the past few years.

This past week the U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure to give a path to citizenship to holders of TPS status and DREAMers. This is good news for the 2 million immigrants in the U.S. with 325,000 living in Florida who fall under this status. Although President Trump ended the program for several countries, there have been several lawsuits around the country challenging the actions of the president.

Immigrants in the Miami area are constantly under scrutiny from the government. Those who have been in the country for several years are still facing challenges. A legal professional who is skilled in immigration can help their client navigate the immigration legal system and help them understand their options. An attorney understands how important it is for their client to stay in the U.S. with their family and will work hard to make sure that happens.
