Join the National TPS Alliance on a nationwide day of action to alert Congress of the waves of even more family separations that are coming in a matter of months as a result of TPS terminations! So far the Trump administration has terminated TPS for Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Sudán, Nepal, Haiti, Liberia, along with other immigrant relief programs. TPS terminations affects over 300,000 TPS holders and over 275,000 U.S-born children with a TPS parent.
