Grant Temporary Protected Status for Malian Immigrants

    1. Lanciata da

      United African Organization

Over the last twelve months, the situation in northern Mali has escalated, with the resignation of the Prime Minister and the inability of the government to respond appropriately to the destructive armed insurgency. 

Over 350,000 people have been displaced and many are unable to meet their basic needs as they struggle to recover from forced evacuations as well as the remnants of a severe drought earlier in 2012.

Given the current situation, deporting hundreds of Malians from the United States would only exacerbate this volatile climate and needlessly place people in perilous situations.

Temporary protected status (TPS) designation for Mali would protect those Malians in the US that need stability until the violence and conflict in their home country subside. TPS would allow those who are eligible to live, work, and study in the United States until it is safe for them to return home. In addition, TPS would enable Malians to provide support and aid to their families and communities, offering relief to those affected.

 

To learn more about the crisis in Mali, listen to our Malian Voices podcast from February 2013.
