Immigration Relief
for Filipinos
The Philippines is seeking additional immigration relief measures from Washington.  These measures would allow
eligible Filipinos to stay in the United States to support the country’s long-term post-typhoon recovery efforts by
designating the Philippines under Temporary Protected Status (TPS).  The announcement was made on
December 16, 2013 by The Department of Foreign Affairs.

Ambassador Jose L. Cuisia, Jr., is formally requesting that eligible Filipino nationals in the US be granted
Temporary Protected Status under Section 244 of the US Immigration and Nationality Act.

Members of the US Senate and the House of Representatives, hundreds of Filipino-American organizations
across the US and the Catholic Church support additional immigration relief measures that a TPS designation
would provide Filipinos.

Filipinos currently in the US would be able to support long-term relief efforts in the country if the Philippines were
granted TPS status by allowing Filipinos to stay and work for a limited period.

Filipinos in the US can immediately take advantage of the immigration breaks announced by the US Citizenship
and Immigration Service on November 15, 2013.  For more information, consult with an experienced immigration
