February 5th and 6th, 2018 USCRI joined 300 members of the National TPS Alliance as they met with members of Congress in Washington, D.C.
The National TPS Alliance is made-up of approximately 1,000 TPS holders as well as their U.S. citizen and immigrant children and family members, clergy, other non-profit organizations, community leaders and additional stakeholders.
USCRI helped the National TPS Alliance by setting-up meetings with members of Congress as well as moderating a panel with DC advocates on the topic of Temporary Protected Status.
Congressman Castro of Texas tweeted about our meeting shortly after it ended. He was moved by the story of a young girl who is a U.S. citizen and expressed her emotional concerns about what will happen if the program is not renewed and her father is deported to Honduras. This is just one of many compelling stories of pending family separation that drive the group to advocate for an extension of TPS and a permanent solution for their status.
USCRI stands with the National TPS Alliance in support of TPS beneficiaries and their families.
