USCIS Agrees to Restore Path to Permanent Residency for TPS Beneficiaries
In late March, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agreed to restore a path to permanent residency for many Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries blocked by then-acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli—an illegally appointed Trump official. Because of the agreement, TPS beneficiaries impacted by this policy will be able to reopen and dismiss their removal orders and apply to adjust their status to become permanent residents— eliminating the threat of deportation if their TPS protections are revoked in the future.
CARECEN intends to be a resource for navigating this new ruling and its effects.
