PRESS CALL TOMORROW: Immigrant Advocates and Potential TPS Holders Call on Administration for Central America TPS Designations

Washington, DC – Tomorrow, June 3 at 12pm ET, immigrant advocates and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders will gather on a press call to urge the Biden administration to act swiftly on TPS designations for Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala.

Widespread poverty, food insecurity, political instability, and devastation in the aftermath of Hurricanes Eta and Iota have rendered Central American countries unsafe to return to and merit TPS redesignations to protect immigrants and their families already living and working in the U.S. Pressure is mounting for the Biden Administration to use TPS as a tool to protect immigrants, stabilize the region, and strengthen the U.S. economy. The press call is happening in the midst of days of action organized by Alianza Americas,, CARECEN of Washington DC, Hondurans Against AIDS, and Casa Yurumein, calling for Central America TPS designations and pushing Congress to pass permanent protections for all TPS holders.
