Continuation of TPS Documentation for Nepal, Honduras

  1. Original Date Announced

    May 10, 2019

    Pending the resolution of two district court cases (Bhattarai v. Nielsen, No. 19–cv–00731, and Ramos v. Nielsen, No. 18–16981), DHS will not implement or enforce the decision to terminate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Honduras or Nepal. Beneficiaries under the TPS designations for Nepal and Honduras will retain their TPS, provided that an individual’s TPS status is not withdrawn because of ineligibility. DHS is extending the validity of TPS-related documentation for Nepalese beneficiaries through March 24, 2020. The TPS designation for Honduras, signed by Acting Secretary McAleenan, remains in effect through January 5, 2020. [ID #78]
