Re-designate Nepal for the Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

With Nepal designated for TPS last year, thousands of Nepali nationals in the U.S. have been able to breathe a sigh of relief and support their families back home. We urge you to re-designate Nepal for TPS so that the Nepali community in the U.S. can continue support the rebuilding efforts in Nepal.

PETITION BACKGROUND

Last year, due to the massive earthquake and the numerous aftershocks in Nepal, the death toll exceeded 9,000 and over eight million people were affected. According to recent news reports, tens of thousands of Nepalis are still living in tents. Recent floods due to heavy monsoon rains have exacerbated the problems, destabilizing the already troubled recovery efforts further, while creating new need for relief.
