DHS Extends TPS for Haiti
The Department of Homeland Security announced they will extend temporary protected status for those living here from Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua until October 2021. Those protections were set to expire in January.
The extension is part of an agreement between the administration and plaintiffs in related lawsuits not to terminate the protections as the lawsuits filter through the U.S. court system.
The order means they can continue to legally live and work in the U.S. for the next nine months and avoid being placed in deportation proceedings.
