USCRI Joins 119 Organizations to Request Extending TPS for Somali Nationals in the U.S.

By USCRI June 7, 2021

Somalia’s TPS designation is set to expire September 17, 2021, but Somalia is still experiencing armed conflict and extraordinary conditions that make safe return impossible. New and escalating government corruption and natural disasters qualify Somalia for redesignation as well. Both extension and redesignation are vital to safeguard the lives of both current TPS holders and Somalis who have arrived in the United States since the last redesignation in 2012. Given current conditions in Somalia, the maximum protection of an 18-month extension and redesignation is both legally and morally warranted.

Here is the full text of the letter by USCRI Request for 18 month extension and redesignation of TPS for Somalia
