Temporary Protected Status – TPS Action Alert

The campaign for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for ALL of the Philippines has waged on for more than six months now. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is expected to make its decision soon.

Although the process has dragged on for much too long, we encourage the community to keep pushing for TPS as a way to provide much needed relief for affected communities of Typhoon Haiyan as well as assist the over 1 million undocumented and out of status Filipino immigrants in the U.S. who deserve dignity and justice.

To pressure DHS to grant TPS for ALL of the Philippines, NAFCON along with the Relief to Recovery coalition is asking the community to call DHS comment line or post a message to the office’s twitter account every day this week.

To Call –  Use DHS Comment Line: 202-282-8495. If busy call DHS Office of Public Affairs Comment line 202-282-8010 then say:

“Hello. I’m (YOUR NAME), from (YOUR CITY and STATE). I am calling because it is very important that TPS be granted immediately for ALL of the Philippines.”

To TWEET: Use Sample Tweets for each day:
