Temporary Protection Status for Afghani Evacuees Considered

President Biden looking to address refugee limbo.

The 70,000 Afghani evacuees brought to America after the military pulled out of Kabul face the threat of deportation as they continue waiting for their official immigration status. The White House reported that they were considering temporary protected status (TPS) among other solutions.

The Department of Homeland Security stated, “At this time, there is no decision to designate Afghanistan for Temporary Protected Status to benefit Afghans currently residing in the United States. The Biden Administration supports legislation to provide permanent legal status to Afghans through the Afghan Adjustment Act and we urge Congress to act swiftly,”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they seek immigration solutions for the Afghani evacuees.
  • For members of Congress as they consider the request to provide Temporary Protected Status to these refugees.
  • For displaced Afghani people who face uncertain futures as they await further developments.
