Despite a recent ruling that granted a preliminary injunction preventing the US government from ending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for immigrants from Sudan, El Slavador, Haiti, and Nicaragua, the only long term relief will come from legislation. For this reason, MIRA is encouraging concerned people to contact their Congress people to support the American Promise Act.
Quoting the MIRA website:
“Only Congress can solve this problem,” she added. “We need to change federal law to provide a path to citizenship for TPS holders. We believe the best option is the American Promise Act, introduced by U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez, D-NY, and co-sponsored by Rep. James McGovern and six other members of the Massachusetts delegation so far. We encourage all members of Congress to support this legislation and fight for its passage. We must ensure that TPS holders in our Commonwealth can continue to legally work, raise families and contribute to our economy.”
