#saveTPS!

CARECEN SF would like to thank Alianza Americas for allowing us to use their #SAVETPS materials and toolkit.

We are urging Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries, faith based communities, labor unions, employers and all people of conscience to contact the White House, Congress, the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Secretary of State and tell them that TPS for Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua is in our national interest. Ending TPS would be bad for business, bad for families, and a violation of our obligations to protect the vulnerable.

Combined, there are more than 300 thousand TPS holders from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras and Nicaragua currently living in the U.S.. These are our classmates, co-workers and neighbors. They have been living and working in the United States legally for years and have put down roots. Many of them have U.S. citizen children, contribute to the U.S. labor market and economy, and send money to impoverished communities back in their countries of origin.

The first, urgent step is to press for an extension of TPS for an additional 18 months. Next, we must ask Congress to pass legislation that would allow TPS holders to adjust to permanent resident status.

Here are simple steps we all can take to save TPS:
