In an unexpected move, the Trump administration has extended temporary protection status (TPS) for Nicaraguan, Sudanese, Salvadoran and Haitian immigrants already in the United States. The extension was announced on February 28, 2019, by the Department of Homeland Security and will extend TPS until January 2020. Over 300,000 people will be affected by this extension, which was prompted by a preliminary injunction granted by U.S. District Judge Edward Chen of the Northern District of California. Individuals from other countries, however, will not benefit from this decision, which is limited only to immigrants from the four countries listed.
No Help for Venezuelan Refugees
Immigrants and refugees fleeing the horrifying conditions currently in place in Venezuela are hoping that similar protections will be extended to them. To date, however, no such plans have been announced by the Trump Administration or the Department of Homeland Security. For these individuals and others worried about their ability to remain in the U.S. legally, working with a qualified and experienced Miami immigration lawyer is often the most practical approach to dealing with visa issues and other problems related to immigration in our area.
