Temporary Protected Status Archives

U-Visas help abused immigrants receive temporary legal status

Domestic violence is a tragic thing that affects many people in South Carolina and the rest of the country, regardless of immigration status. But for many undocumented immigrants, the fear of deportation prevents victims from reporting abuse to authorities.

Temporary Protected Status not necessarily pathway to green card

DID YOU KNOW foreign nationals granted Temporary Protected Status (pursuant to a designation by the Attorney General of the Untied States that their country of origin is engaged in an ongoing armed conflict that poses a serious threat to their personal safety or has undergone an earthquake, flood, drought, epidemic or other environmental disaster resulting in a substantial, but temporary, disruption of living conditions) may not adjust status to that of lawful permanent residents (holders of green cards) unless they were inspected, admitted or paroled at the time of entry into the United States. In essence, immigration officials, supported by United States court decisions, have once again determined that illegal entry into the United States is not a pathway to a green card.
