Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is an option for eligible individuals to obtain legal status in the US for a temporary period of time. Immigration authorities determine which countries do not provide a safe environment for their own citizens to go back to. TPS beneficiaries are not asked to leave the United States and can get work authorization for some time, which can be prolonged.
A Temporary Protected Status doesn’t automatically provide a permanent resident status. However, it allows citizens from designated countries to live and work in the United States while it is still considered unsafe to go back to their countries of origin.
The Secretary can select any given country for Temporary Protected Status because of a number of temporary conditions in the country such as armed conflict (civil war), environmental disaster (hurricane or earthquake) or an epidemic situation.
