The Department of Homeland Security today posted a Federal Register notice on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Ethiopia. This notice provides information about how to register for TPS under Ethiopia’s designation. In October, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas announced the 18-month designation of Ethiopia for TPS.
The registration process begins on Dec. 12, 2022. All individuals who want to request TPS under the designation of Ethiopia must file an application.
To be eligible for TPS under Ethiopia’s designation, individuals must demonstrate their continuous residence in the United States since Oct. 20, 2022, and continuous physical presence in the United States since Dec. 12, 2022. Individuals arriving in the United States after Oct. 20, 2022 are not eligible for TPS.

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas today announced the extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti for an additional 18 months, from February 4, 2023, through August 3, 2024, due to extraordinary and temporary conditions in Haiti. He also redesignated Haiti for TPS, allowing Haitian nationals residing in the United States as of November 6, 2022, to apply for TPS through August 3, 2024, so long as they meet all eligibility requirements. It is important to note that Haitians entering the United States after November 6, 2022, are not eligible for TPS and, like other individuals without a legal basis to remain in the United States, will be subject to removal. To repeat: Haitians entering the United States after November 6, 2022, including those who might be considering entering now, are not eligible for TPS.

El Secretario de Seguridad Nacional, Alejandro N. Mayorkas, anunció hoy la extensión del Estatus de Protección Temporal (TPS) para Haití por 18 meses adicionales, desde el 4 de febrero de 2023 hasta el 3 de agosto de 2024, debido a condiciones extraordinarias y temporales en Haití. También volvió a designar a Haití para TPS, lo que permite que los ciudadanos haitianos que residen en los Estados Unidos a partir del 6 de noviembre de 2022 soliciten TPS hasta el 3 de agosto de 2024, siempre que cumplan con todos los requisitos de elegibilidad. Es importante tener en cuenta que los haitianos que ingresen a los Estados Unidos después del 6 de noviembre de 2022 no son elegibles para TPS y, al igual que otras personas sin una base legal para permanecer en los Estados Unidos, estarán sujetos a expulsión. Para repetir: los haitianos que ingresan a los Estados Unidos después del 6 de noviembre de 2022, incluidos aquellos que podrían estar considerando ingresar ahora, no son elegibles para TPS.

O Secretário de Segurança Interna Alejandro N. Mayorkas anunciou hoje a extensão do Status de Proteção Temporária (TPS) para o Haiti por mais 18 meses, de 4 de fevereiro de 2023 a 3 de agosto de 2024, devido às condições extraordinárias e temporárias no Haiti. Ele também redesignou o Haiti para o TPS, permitindo que cidadãos haitianos residentes nos Estados Unidos em 6 de novembro de 2022 se candidatem ao TPS até 3 de agosto de 2024, desde que atendam a todos os requisitos de elegibilidade. É importante observar que os haitianos que entrarem nos Estados Unidos após 6 de novembro de 2022 não são elegíveis para TPS e, como outros indivíduos sem base legal para permanecer nos Estados Unidos, estarão sujeitos a remoção. Repetindo: os haitianos que entrarem nos Estados Unidos após 6 de novembro de 2022, incluindo aqueles que podem estar pensando em entrar agora, não são elegíveis para o TPS.

On Nov. 15, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan issued a decision ending the use of the Title 42 health policy to expel migrants rapidly at the U.S. border. Title 42 of the Public Health Services Act is a public health authority that authorizes the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to suspend entry of individuals into the U.S. to protect public health. Since the Trump administration, the use of Title 42 has denied about a million people the legal right to seek asylum. The Biden administration will now prepare to end expulsions by Dec. 21, 2022, and process asylum seekers under the long-standing legal pathways required by international law.

El 15 de noviembre, el juez del Tribunal de Distrito de los EE. UU. Emmet G. Sullivan emitió una decisión que puso fin al uso de la política de salud del Título 42 para expulsar rápidamente a los migrantes en la frontera de los EE. UU. El Título 42 de la Ley de Servicios de Salud Pública es una autoridad de salud pública que autoriza al Director de los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) a suspender la entrada de personas a los EE. UU. para proteger la salud pública. Desde la administración de Trump, el uso del Título 42 ha negado a alrededor de un millón de personas el derecho legal de solicitar asilo. La administración Biden ahora se preparará para poner fin a las expulsiones antes del 21 de diciembre de 2022 y procesar a los solicitantes de asilo bajo las vías legales de larga data requeridas por el derecho internacional.

Em 15 de novembro, o juiz do Tribunal Distrital dos EUA, Emmet G. Sullivan, emitiu uma decisão encerrando o uso da política de saúde do Título 42 para expulsar migrantes rapidamente da fronteira dos EUA. O Título 42 da Lei de Serviços de Saúde Pública é uma autoridade de saúde pública que autoriza o Diretor dos Centros de Controle e Prevenção de Doenças (CDC) a suspender a entrada de indivíduos nos EUA para proteger a saúde pública. Desde o governo Trump, o uso do Título 42 negou a cerca de um milhão de pessoas o direito legal de buscar asilo. O governo Biden agora se preparará para encerrar as expulsões até 21 de dezembro de 2022 e processar os requerentes de asilo sob os caminhos legais de longa data exigidos pelo direito internacional.

Attention DACA recipients! On Monday, October 31st, DHS’s final rule to preserve and fortify DACA officially went into effect. USCIS will continue to accept and process applications for deferred action, work authorization, and advance parole for CURRENT recipients. However, new DACA requests cannot be processed because a court case about DACA’s future is still ongoing. DACA is not just about giving an opportunity to educated young people who have been in the US since they were children, it also plays an important role in protecting our economy. More than 340,000 essential workers are DACA recipients, including healthcare workers and teachers!

Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

What’s the latest on DACA? On Oct. 14 a federal judge extended his order protecting hundreds of thousands of Dreamers from being deported but blocking new applicants from the program. The judge had ruled last year that DACA was unlawful, but allowed it to stay in effect during appeals. Recently, the Appeals Court sent the issue back in light of revised DACA regulations set to take effect October 31st. This means the judge will now review the program again, and, in the meantime current DACA recipients can renew their status but first-time applications cannot be decided. Catholic Social Services strongly encourages current DACA recipients to renew in a timely manner to ensure their status is sustained as long as possible.

You can find instructions, announcements, and more information at the following link: https://www.uscis.gov/DACA

¿Qué es lo último sobre DACA? El 14 de octubre, un juez federal extendió su orden para proteger a cientos de miles de Dreamers de ser deportados, pero bloqueó el ingreso de nuevos solicitantes al programa. El juez había dictaminado el año pasado que DACA era ilegal, pero permitió que siguiera vigente durante las apelaciones. Recientemente, la Corte de Apelaciones devolvió el asunto a la luz de las regulaciones revisadas de DACA que entrarán en vigencia el 31 de octubre. Esto significa que el juez ahora revisará el programa nuevamente y, mientras tanto, los beneficiarios actuales de DACA pueden renovar su estado, pero no se puede decidir sobre las solicitudes por primera vez. Los Servicios Sociales Católicos recomiendan encarecidamente a los beneficiarios actuales de DACA que renueven de manera oportuna para garantizar que su estado se mantenga el mayor tiempo posible.

Quais são as novidades do DACA? Em 14 de outubro, um juiz federal estendeu sua ordem protegendo centenas de milhares de Dreamers de serem deportados, mas bloqueando novos candidatos do programa. O juiz havia decidido no ano passado que o DACA era ilegal, mas permitiu que permanecesse em vigor durante os recursos. Recentemente, o Tribunal de Apelações devolveu a questão à luz dos regulamentos revisados do DACA, que entrarão em vigor em 31 de outubro. Isso significa que o juiz agora revisará o programa novamente e, enquanto isso, os atuais beneficiários do DACA podem renovar seu status, mas as inscrições pela primeira vez não podem ser decididas. Os Serviços Sociais Católicos incentivam fortemente os atuais beneficiários do DACA a renovar em tempo hábil para garantir que seu status seja mantido o maior tempo possível.

Hello, I work with the Pet Food Task Force (petfoodtaskforce.org), and we have worked with 150 food pantries around MA to provide donated pet food. Our goal is to help ensure pets don't go hungry, and at the same time, ensure that families in need can feed their pets. We are looking for a couple of volunteer pet food transporters in Fall River, who would be able to move food from point a to point b in Fall River. If you are interested, please message me and I'll share the full details of the job opportunity.

Thanks!
