U.S. Senate Declines to Grant TPS to Venezuelans

Updated: Jan 14, 2021

Yesterday, lawmakers attempting to grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to Venezuelan nationals failed in the Senate. The Administration has been swiftly whittling down the list of countries whose nationals are eligible for TPS in the U.S. See article: Republicans Block Attempt to Pass Tps for Venezuelans Weeks Before Election Day.

Just three days ago, the Ninth Circuit sided with the Administration, allowing four countries to be stripped from the list of TPS countries for the foreseeable future. See article: Appeals Court OKs Trump Plan to End Protected Immigration Status for 4 Countries.

The countries at issue were El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan. Accordingly, nationals from those countries who are currently in the U.S. risk being expelled from the U.S. in the near future.
