REAUTHORIZE TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS for Countries Recovering from Ebola!
In 2014, President Obama enacted Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone in response to the Ebola epidemic. TPS protects people from Ebola-affected countries by allowing them to stay in the U.S. and work legally while it is unsafe for them to return home.
Unfortunately, the program is expiring, and more than 8,000 Guineans, Liberians, and Sierra Leoneans could lose TPS in May 2016. While the Ebola epidemic may have ended, the devastation and danger it caused has not.
We call on Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to act immediately to reauthorize TPS. After endorsing our campaign, you can also help our efforts by signing our petition and sharing it with your family and friends!
