CAIR-Minnesota Disappointed by DHS Extension only of TPS to Somalia and Not Reinstatement.

(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 7/19/18) – The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) today expressed disappointment that the Trump administration decided to extend but not redesignate Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for Somali nationals currently in the United States.

By only extending for 18 months TPS for Somalis – and not redesignating the status – means that Somali nationals who arrived to the U.S. after May 1, 2012 will not be eligible to apply for TPS. However, the 500 current enrolled TPS holders from Somalia are eligible to re-register for an extension of their status for 18 months, through March 17, 2020. There are an estimated over thousand Somali Nationals that could have enrolled to TPS if it was reinstated.
