I saw this interesting article on TPS for another country, I was hoping this would apply to Nepal as well and more people from Nepal could get TPS and be able to help self and others in Nepal esp during this difficult time in Nepal as she is being hit with natural disasters one after another; if the Nepalese people who are in USA could earn some money here legally and send a portion of it to suffering friends and family in Nepal, this would be such a big help.

TPS Nepal : - Will Biden admin allow new TPS applications for Nepalese who are currently in USA as well, like they did to Haitians ???

Background and Context and questions

1. Both Nepal and Haiti were devastated by Earthquake. TPS for both are due to expire on October 4.

Imp - Please read the article below before you attempt the following questions
         ===========================================================

2. Could someone clarify how the Haitian TPS situation is different from Nepal (TPS has not been extended for Nepal yet, No New Applicants allowed yet - Is the following article a sign of Hope for Nepalese in USA as well )

3. How likely is it that the Nepali people who are currently in USA be allowed to send new TPS application?

4. How soon will TPS for Nepal be extended (August 4 is 60 days from expiry of TPS for Nepal, it has already been extended for Haiti)

5. How can Nepalese who are currently in USA prepare for this?

6. Of course, the Green card  & eventually Citizenship for those who are interested is the ultimate hope for the Nepalese on TPS, which is taking so long; extension by 18 more months and New TPS would be a great help for now.

Biden administration extends deportation relief for Haitian immigrants, allows new applications
BY CAMILO MONTOYA-GALVEZ

MAY 22, 2021 / 6:36 PM / CBS NEWS

The Biden administration on Saturday announced it will extend deportation protections and work permits for 54,000 Haitian immigrants living in the U.S. with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and allow tens of thousands of other eligible Haitians to request relief.


Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said he will extend the TPS designation for Haiti by 18 months, allowing current recipients to renew their protections, which the Trump administration sought to end. Mayorkas also opened the program to new applicants, allowing eligible Haitian immigrants to apply for TPS as along as they had arrived in the U.S. by Friday, May 21.

"Haiti is currently experiencing serious security concerns, social unrest, an increase in human rights abuses, crippling poverty, and lack of basic resources, which are exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic," Mayorkas said. "After careful consideration, we determined that we must do what we can to support Haitian nationals in the United States until conditions in Haiti improve so they may safely return home."


Senator Bob Menendez, a Democrat from New Jersey, said the Biden administration's decision to expand eligibility for the Haiti TPS program could benefit approximately 150,000 Haitian immigrants, including 100,000 potential new applicants.

"As Haiti passes through an acute political and security crisis and faces enduring humanitarian challenges, this decision provides urgently needed protections for eligible Haitians in the United States," Menendez said in a statement. "The last thing our country should be doing is forcing an entire community in the U.S. to decide between packing up their lives and tearing their families apart by self-deporting, or becoming undocumented and forced into the shadows of our society."


U.S. law allows DHS secretaries to grant TPS — a provisional humanitarian immigration protection — to immigrants whose home countries are plagued by armed conflict, recovering from natural disasters, dealing with an epidemic or that are otherwise unable to guarantee the safe return of their citizens.

The Obama administration first designated Haiti for TPS in 2010 following the deadly earthquake that battered the Caribbean nation that year. The designation was extended several times until 2018, when the Trump administration said it would wind down the deportation relief program.

The program was set to end this fall unless the Biden administration reversed the Trump-era termination efforts.

Saturday's announcement comes after months of pressure from immigrant advocates, who argued the ongoing political turmoil and high levels of insecurity and crime in Haiti endangered immigrants the U.S. was deporting there.

In his announcement, Mayorkas said he made his decision after deliberating with other agencies about the "temporary and extraordinary conditions" in Haiti, including "a political crisis and human rights abuses; serious security concerns; and the COVID-19 pandemic's exacerbation of a dire economic situation and lack of access to food, water, and healthcare."


The new TPS designation, which was first reported by BuzzFeed News, will not benefit Haitians who travel to the U.S. after the announcement.

The Biden administration has also extended TPS protections to some Syrian and Burmese immigrants in the U.S.; though it has yet to say whether it will reverse the Trump administration's move to end TPS protections for immigrants from El Salvador, Sudan, Nicaragua, Nepal and Honduras.

Applying current Critical Race Theory and Equity, their eligibility rate is higher than yours.

Good luck!

Thanks S in S for your valuable input. 

Isn't it more about who is eligible than who has higher eligibility when it comes to TPS designation or approval.

Of the 14, 000 eligible Nepalese who has been approved for TPS, I thought nobody is ranking them which one of these people have higher eligibility than others.

In the same way, of the several countries that were approved TPS; nobody is ranking them which countries have higher eligibility:

I thought it was more like "All or None law" ie whether you are eligible or not eligible.

In case I am not right, it would be interesting to know why Haiti has higher eligibility than Nepal or any other countries, ie what are the criteria for higher eligibility for TPS in USA or what in the  current Critical Race Theory and Equity gives Haiti Higher eligibility ranking?

This is important for the people of Nepal because it will help us understand how practical is our optimism or hope for TPS and plan accordingly, please help us understand
