The Trump administration has put the lives of over 300,000 people who have been living, working and studying legally in the U.S. for years, some for decades, under TPS (Temporary Protected Status) at risk of deportation by terminating their legal status. This means that long-time, valued members of our community could lose their jobs, homes, be kicked out of classrooms and separated from their loved ones. But Congress can stop that from happening.
Congress must pass legislation that will protect people with TPS and allow them to continue contributing to their communities and our economy.
YOU CAN HELP. Take action to protect families.
