Editor's Comments of the Day

The TPS statute and INS regulations provide eligible aliens from designated countries a temporary stay of removal and employment authorization for the designated TPS period and for any extensions. TPS does not lead to permanent resident status. When a TPS designation ends, beneficiaries revert to the immigration status they had prior to TPS (unless that benefit has expired or been terminated) or to any other status they may have been granted while in TPS. Aliens from sixteen countries are currently eligible for TPS status. The recent addition of El Salvador to the list is part of ongoing efforts by the US to assist El Salvador in recovering from devastating earthquakes.

Tip of the Day

Immigrant's Weekly

Some people may not need the thorough and detailed coverage of immigration news provided by Immigration Daily. For those people ILW.COM publishes the Immigrant's Weekly, a newsletter designed to provide the latest immigration news for immigrants. Instead of focusing on immigration law, Immigrant's Weekly is built around the immigrant experience and is intended to meet the needs of immigrants for immigration information. For the Immigrant's Weekly we sift through the week's immigration items to bring you the ones that affect your life and give you the immigration news you need to know.

We encourage readers to write to and share your immigration stories. We invite you to exchange your opinions on immigration issues and share your experiences with others on topics such as: What led up to your decision to move to a new country? Was it for a better job? a better education? to be with your spouse? What problems did you encounter? How did you decide which possessions to take and which to leave? What did your family and friends say? Did they encourage you in your decision or beg you not to go? And what did you find when you arrived? Was it as you expected, or nothing like you expected? If you or someone you know would like to receive free weekly immigration updates in the Immigrant's Weekly please subscribe on ILW.COM's home page or at
