What Is TPS?
Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a provisional designation granted to immigrants in the U.S. who cannot return to their home countries due to violence, natural disasters, epidemics, or other extraordinary circumstances. Since the early 1990s, TPS has allowed holders to legally work in the U.S. Many have been in the country for decades due to multiple extensions.
