Housing and Revitalization
TPS has been extended for persons with TPS from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Nepal and Haiti until July of 2024. This allows eligible people (about 392,000) from these countries to remain in the U.S. shielded from deportation and with the ability to work lawfully. In late 2021 U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Services reported that there were 241,700 TPS holders from El Salvador, 76,000 from Honduras, 53,000 from Haiti and 4,250 from Nicaragua in the US. Although this is not the permanent solution we need, it provides temporary security as we continue to work on this important issue.
