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.
