United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that Syrian nationals who want to maintain their Temporary Protected Status (TPS) through Sept. 30, 2019, must re-register between now and May 4, 2018.
Background: The Department of Homeland Security announced earlier this year that it would extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for nationals of Syria who qualify for the program. The Trump administration has moved to end TPS designation for a number of countries, but opted to extend it for Syria citing “extraordinary conditions” that support the country’s ongoing TPS designation.
BAL Analysis: Syrian nationals who wish to extend their TPS must re-register before May 4, 2018. The decision to extend TPS for Syrians reflects DHS’s conclusion that Syria remains extremely dangerous. DHS will review conditions in Syria at some point before Sept. 30, 2019, to determine whether TPS should be extended again.
