U.S. extends temporary protected status for more than 330,000 immigrants

The Biden administration will allow thousands of immigrants living in the U.S. on temporary status to renew their work permits for 18 months.

  • The immigrants in question come from a range of countries including El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Nepal.
  • Biden’s announcement reverses a Trump-era directive that sought to revoke the humanitarian protections.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said his decision preserves protections for more than 330,000 people from the four countries, granting them permission to live and work in the United States into 2025.
