Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

#SaveTPS to protect hundreds of thousands of immigrants

Temporary Protected Status grants protection from deportation to people from certain countries that are afflicted by natural disasters, war, or other dangerous conditions.

Over the past year, the Trump administration has ended TPS for over 300,000 immigrants. 

Join us to save TPS and call on Congress to create a roadmap to citizenship for all immigrants.
