Permanent Residence for certain TPS Beneficiaries
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has opened the way for beneficiaries of the Temporary Protected Status to obtain permanent residence in the U.S.
TPS is granted by US authorities to nationals of certain countries affected by conflict or natural disasters, including El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua, and that temporarily stops their deportation and gives them a work permit. This ruling could benefit more than 300,000 individuals at present living in the U.S.
Work permits for Salvadorans under the TPS with a previous expiration date of September 9, 2016 have been automatically extended to the 9 September 2017. The current extension date of TPS for Hondurans and Nicaraguans has been extended through January 5, 2018.
