The United Nations has now estimated that Pakistan will need billions of dollars to recover from its worst floods in 80 years - further straining a country already dependent on foreign aid to prop up its economy and back its war against Islamist militants. Over 60,000 troops are involved in flood relief operations trying to assist nearly 14 million people who are now affected by the flooding. The U.N. has just launched an appeal for $459 million in immediate aid, as Pakistanis have become more frustrated with their government's response and President Asif Ali Zardari's trip to Europe.

pakistan is suffering from a horrific disaster......war on terror had already shaken the basis of country and this calamity is further deepening the crisis.International community must cast away their indifferent attitude and help Pakistan in a fruitful manner.This is a humanitarian disaster so let's take the politics out of this and focus on the innocent babies, children, teens, women and men.

Dear Mr.President:The United Nations has now estimated that Pakistan will need billions of dollars to recover from its worst floods in 80 years - further straining a country already dependent on foreign aid to prop up its economy and back its war against Islamist militants. Over 60,000 troops are involved in flood relief operations trying to assist nearly 14 million people who are now affected by the flooding. The U.N. has just launched an appeal for $459 million in immediate aid, as Pakistanis have become more frustrated with their government's response and President Asif Ali Zardari's trip to Europe.

The department of State, Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton & Secretary of Homeland Security should designate Pakistan for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) due to conditions in Pakistan that temporarily prevent Pakistani nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately. USCIS should grant TPS to eligibile Pakistani nationals, who are already in the United States. Eligible individuals without nationality who last resided in the designated country may also be granted TPS.

Pakistan should be designate a country for TPS due to the following temporary conditions in the country:

* Ongoing armed conflict (War on Terrorism)
* An environmental disaster (Floods)
* Other extraordinary and temporary conditions
