Is it worth it to apply for the 6 month extension of TPS for Haitians?

On May 22, 2017, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced a 6 month extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for some 58,700 Haitian immigrants who have been living in the United States since the 2010 earthquake.


To re-register, you must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status. You must also submit Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, whether you are requesting employment authorization or not. As a re-registrant, you do not pay the Form I-821 application fee, but if you are age 14 or older, you must submit the biometric services fee. The fee for biometric services is around $85.

TPS does not lead to permanent resident status, but holders of TPS are eligible to apply for asylum or permanent residence. TPS does not provide welfare, SNAP benefits, or other government aid.

Tell me why someone currently qualified for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) should apply for the extension?

Why some people should not apply?

What do you think?
