The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced that nationals of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, who were present in the United States on November 20, 2014, and continue to be present in the United States thereafter, are eligible for Temporary Protected Status, more commonly known as TPS.  Individuals who are TPS beneficiaries will not be removed (deported) from the United States, can be granted work authorization, and can also be granted travel authorization.

The period for nationals of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone to apply for TPS begins on November 21, 2014 and ends on May 20, 2015.  If you think that you may be eligible for TPS, please contact LaFountain & Wollman, P.C. to set up a free half-hour consultation with an immigration lawyer to discuss your eligibility.
