(Worthy News) - The Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday night that it will extend humanitarian protected status for the some 6,900 Syrians in the U.S. that already have it, but won’t allow newly arrived Syrians to apply.

DHS, which is responsible for deciding the fate of the program, said it was issuing an 18-month extension for the program known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), but not a re-designation.

An extension allows those who already have TPS to remain in the program and re-register, but more recent arrivals will not be granted protection under this program. [ Source: ABC News (Read More...) ]
