    TPS Recipients Are Helping to Save the US Economy: It’s Time to Protect Them

    UCLA LPPI expert Cecilia Menjivar wrote an opinion piece on the importance of protecting TPS recipients. “De-documenting and deporting TPS holders would destroy families and go against the national interest. Thus, rather than green-lighting the end of TPS designation, this designation should be renewed and then TPS beneficiaries should be given the chance to apply for permanent residence. It is time for Congress to do the right thing to ensure that TPS beneficiaries are permanently protected,” writes Cecilia Menjivar.
