Tell Congress to help protect Yemenis in the US

On July 5, the Department of Homeland Security will decide whether to extend and redesignate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Yemen. TPS allows individuals already living in the US to receive protection when their home country faces war or natural disaster. Yemen first received the TPS designation in September 2015. Since then, the war and humanitarian crisis there have only intensified. If the Trump administration cancels TPS for Yemen — as it has for three other countries already — 1,200 Yemenis would be forced to return.

Today we need your help: contact your members of Congress and ask them to step up by issuing a statement and making a call to the Department of Homeland Security in support of the extension and redesignation of TPS for Yemen.
