Defend Immigrant Rights! Mass State House Rally - 24 June 6pm
24 Jun 2017
Save the Temporary Protected Status for Immigrants

When: Saturday, June 24, 2017, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where: Massachusetts State House • 24 Beacon Street • Boston

Centro Presente invites you to a vigil in solidarity with people protected under Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will consider whether to extend designations of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for all nationals that currently hold TPS. TPS is a form of immigration status that provides employment authorization and protection from deportation for foreign nationals who cannot be safely returned to their home countries.

In terms of countries with the largest share of TPS recipients, the Trump Administration will decide whether to terminate the immigration status of over 300,000 immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and, most imminently, Haiti. In light of this Administration’s radical increase of interior and exterior enforcement through executive orders, funding requests, and policy guidance, the continued existence of TPS for these three countries is very much at risk.
