NEW TPS for Central American and Haitian nationals NOW!

Issue a new Temporary Protective Status (TPS) designation for El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Haiti.

As you very well know, climate catastrophes ravaged through Central America late last year leaving entire communities struggling to rebuild. The aftermath of Hurricanes Eta and Iota have made it nearly impossible for communities to rebuild with dignity. There is a severe social and economic crisis happening now and families need your urgent support. Similarly, Haiti has been ravaged by climate catastrophes, political violence, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The climate crisis coupled with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requires swift action and we call on your administration to issue a new Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Haiti.

The human costs in Central America and Haiti are heartbreaking and we urge your administration to take swift action to protect migrant families.

Thank you,

The undersigned

Why is this important?

Climate catastrophes ravaged through Central America late last year leaving entire communities struggling to rebuild. The aftermath of Hurricanes Eta and Iota have made it nearly impossible for communities to rebuild with dignity. There is a severe social and economic crisis happening now and families need our urgent support.

The climate crisis coupled with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requires swift action by elected leaders. We call on the Biden-Harris administration to issue a new Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. We also ask for a new designation for Haiti [1], a country that has been ravaged by climate catastrophes, violence and severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The human costs in Central America and Haiti are heartbreaking at it’s time leaders take swift action to protect immigrant families.

It is impossible for the nationals from these countries to live with dignity under the current circumstances.
