FWD.us Statement on DHS Delaying the Termination of TPS for Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador

WASHINGTON, DC – FWD.us President Todd Schulte issued the following statement today on the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to delay the termination of TPS for Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador:

"We are pleased that, due to successful legal challenges, the termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan has been delayed until January 2020. This is welcome news, but should not slow Congressional efforts to permanently protect these communities, who face imminent risk as a result of the actions of the Trump Administration. That is why on Wednesday, March 6th, more than 75 Dreamers, TPS holders, and DED recipients will be traveling to Washington D.C., in partnership with FWD.us, to meet with federal lawmakers and advocate for permanent legislation to protect their communities. It is long past time for Congress to take meaningful steps to protect these vulnerable populations who have been living, working, and contributing to our country for decades.”
