Temporary Protected Status Clinic with The Office of New Americans of Miami-Dade

Students will help Haitian nationals located in the U.S. apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). TPS provides a temporary stay of deportation, and individuals filing for TPS also may request work and travel authorization. TPS is a temporary immigration status provided to nationals of certain countries experiencing problems that make it difficult or unsafe for their nationals to be deported to those countries. The Department of Homeland Security announced a new 18-month designation of Haiti for TPS in May 2021.
