2018/04/26 - STATEMENT FROM CITIES FOR ACTION ON TERMINATION OF TPS FOR NEPAL
Cities for Action calls on Congress to protect TPS recipients as Trump Administration announces the phase-out of TPS for Nepal
Cities for Action condemns the Trump Administration’s decision to terminate Temporary Protected Status for Nepal. Nearly 9,000 Nepali TPS holders throughout the United States have sought refuge in our country and contribute to the economic diversity and cultural vibrancy of our cities, yet the Trump Administration has jeopardized their future. The White House is blatantly ignoring the purpose of TPS and abdicating its moral responsibility to protect Nepalis in the United States from the continuing impact of the devastating 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. Now that the President has abandoned Nepali TPS recipients, Congress must act swiftly to protect this community.
