Immigration Team Member Maria Palacios and one of her clients were interviewed by Christian Colon of Channel 3 News. The interview highlighted the recent surge of Venezuelan families applying for Temporary Protective Status due to the recent changes in immigration laws under the Biden administration.
A temporary status is given to eligible nationals of designated countries who are present in the United States. The status, afforded to nationals from some countries affected by armed conflict or natural disaster,allows persons to live and work in the US for limited times.
Currently, persons from thirteen countries—Venezuela, Haiti, El Salvador, Syria,Nepal, Honduras, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Nicaragua, Myanmar, SouthSudan and Burma—have temporary protected status.
Our current project is to register the first 100 or more Venezuelan Nationals in the first 2 months of the registration period that runs through Sept. 5, 2021. As of March 19th, we have sent out our first 15 Venezuelan applicants’ packages to be properly filed with US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
