Congress Must Act Now to Protect Nepali TPS Holders

Despite strong social and cultural ties to the U.S. and significant contributions to the U.S. economy, the future of nearly 15,000 Nepali Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders remains uncertain. The 2018 decision by the Trump Administration to terminate TPS for Nepal, and subsequent court decisions by the 9th Circuit allowing a potential end to these designations, places the lives of Nepali TPS holders and their families at risk of deportation. Congress must act now to protect Nepali TPS holders.
