US Extends Nicaraguans’ TPS Protection until 2024 – Havana Times

The United States has extended for 18 months the Temporary Protective Status (TPS) held by immigrants from six countries, including Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Honduras. Some 4,250 Nicaraguans are in the US with these protections, and their continued presence in the country depends on this decision.

The extension measure, which benefits a total of 260,000 migrants from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, Nepal and Sudan, was announced on Thursday, November 10th, by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Those with TPS status now retain their right to work and live legally in the US, until June 2024.

This announcement was made less than two months before the current permission for these six nationalities was due to expire, on December 31.
