Congressional Support for TPS?

The Guatemalan Foreign Ministry appears to report today that “Congressman Thompson” has written a letter to President Obama in support of the TPS request.  The article does not say which of the three Congressmen named Thompson wrote the letter, but it does reference California, so we called the DC office of Representative Mike Thompson, who hails from the 1st District of California.

Unfortunately, the person who handles the immigration matters for Representative Thompson is out of the office today, but the aide who spoke to us suggested that we email him to get more information. Stayed tuned here for any response to that email.

    Oops, my bad, I misread that. It’s actually California Assemblywoman Norma Torres. I called her office, confirmed that she wrote the letter, and am awaiting a copy of that letter, which we hope to post on here. Stay tuned!

    If an individual is granted TPS, and remains in Temporary Protected Status if and when comprehensive immigration reform is passed, do you think the individual will still be eligible to benefit from the passage of immigration reform? In other words, immigration reform is aimed at individuals in the country who are out of status, if an individual is granted TPS, they are technically in the country legally, and therefore, in status. Do you think their TPS status will prohibit them from benefiting from immigration reform, if and when it happens?

    Now they are reporting that congressmen Moises Denis and Ruben Kihuen from Nevado have written a letter each to President Obama in support to guatemala TPS petition.

    I also was curious about the question Mario had posted above. If a person in the US illegally applies for TPS when and if its granted, they would then be considered to be in the country legally then right once they apply etc right? So with being in the country legally, this already offers a pathway to adjusting status etc to be here with Permanent status right? Thanks and I think you guys are awesome helping the people out like this. we need more of you who care about the people and are there to help them.Thanks. Joe B
