(Worthy News) – More than 76,000 Afghan nationals brought to the United States following President Joe Biden’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan may apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to shield them from deportation, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Wednesday, despite the fact that a watchdog report last month found some refugees posed serious security risks.
The U.S. military evacuated more than 120,000 people from Afghanistan in August 2021 after the Taliban seized Kabul and toppled the government to establish the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. Of the more than 84,000 people eventually brought to the United States, over 76,000 are Afghan nationals who are now eligible to apply for TPS following the DHS announcement.
“This TPS designation will help to protect Afghan nationals who have already been living in the United States from returning to unsafe conditions,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a press release. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
