Tell President Trump and Congressional Leadership to Extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for All TPS Holders & Support Permanent Residency for Them
Edwin & Mily Murillo are beneficiaries of TPS who've lived in the US for 17 years. They're from El Salvador and acquired TPS in 2001 after three devastating, consecutive earthquakes suffered there early that year. In the US, they both attended and paid their way through local colleges and created a successful HVAC cleaning business. They have two US citizen daughters, have purchased a house and have built their home in this country. They reside in Dallas, TX, and are active members of the Dallas Committee in Defense of TPS.
My name is Edwin Murillo. Over 300,000 people, including me and my wife, face imminent deportation to countries torn apart by war, natural disaster and extreme violence, unless the Trump Administration acts to extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
My wife and I, like many TPS holders, have lived and worked in the United States for nearly 20 years. We went to school, bought our first home, created our business, and—most importantly—raised our two beautiful US-born daughters here. Unfortunately, our ability to live and work in the US is now under threat.
TPS protects migrants who cannot safely return to our countries of origin because of war or natural disaster. Today, our brothers and sisters from 13 countries, including El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, and Nepal, benefit from TPS. To qualify, we must meet certain requirements—including having been in the US on the date our countries were first designated, passing a background check, and paying regular fees (read a report about TPS in the United States here).
To remain effective, TPS must be renewed regularly. But President Trump has threatened to end most—if not all—existing TPS designations. That would be a disaster. And Congress has failed to find a Permanent Solution that the TPS Holders deserve.
We know that in order to protect TPS, we must organize. TPS holders from across the country are coming together to demand that the Trump Administration extends TPS for all our brothers and sisters.
Please join us in getting this message to the President and Congressional Leadership (Rep. Paul Ryan, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and Sen. Mitch McConnoll).
SIGN NOW to tell Trump and Congressional Leadership that forcibly removing us from our homes is cruel, short-sighted, and wrong—and we won’t stand for it:
