OBAMA GRANTS PROTECTED STATUS TO SYRIANS IN U.S. ILLEGALLY
The Obama administration has redesignated war-torn Syria for “temporary protected status” or TPS, meaning almost anyone from Syria who is in the United States on an expired visa can stay here for at least another 18 months.
This includes students, tourists, professors, imams, or anyone else from Syria who may have overstayed their visas expirations over the last four years. They can now stay in the country without fear of deportation.
The move by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson showed up in the Federal Register Monday. It allows eligible Syrian nationals, or persons without nationality who last resided in Syria, to register or re-register for TPS in accordance with the Federal Register notice.
