WASHINGTON (AP) — People in the U.S. from Sudan and South Sudan can stay with temporary legal status to escape the conflict and natural disasters in their homelands, the Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday. It faces pressure to grant the same to Ukrainians.
There are 12 countries whose nationals receive temporary protected status, a program that former President Donald Trump sought to curtail amid criticism of frequent extensions that have enabled people to live in the U.S. for years in a kind of legal limbo.
The announcement affects a relatively small number of people. DHS said there are about 97 beneficiaries under the TPS designation for South Sudan and the extension will enable about 235 more to obtain the status.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services says there are about 700 people from Sudan with TPS and 2,390 who are newly eligible under the new designation.
Anyone from either country who arrived in the U.S. after Tuesday would not be eligible for the temporary status, which requires a background security check and does not make anyone automatically in line to receive permanent legal status.

May the people enabling this burn in Hell.
This is just part of a larger effort go completely open all the US borders. That’s it.
Just keep reminding me why I will vote for Trump again in 2024
Pretty soon the people here on “temporary” status will outnumber permanent resident aliens.
temporary = permanent
And it is completely bipartisan.
China loves the minerals in Sudan. They don’t hire Sudanese much though.
I don’t see C-17s transporting refugees from Ukraine to the US. Partly because they’re the wrong color and these people want to go back home. Unlike the Muslim men who didn’t want to fight when they “Arab Spring” was happening.
They couldn’t go anywhere else? Oh I see, no one else wanted them and didn’t need their “votes”. Amerika! The World’s Third World Refugee Camp
How come the leftists are not flying the Ukrainians refugees over to the United States? Oh yeah, they are white.
Immigration policy now has one goal - deconstructing the United States.
Some of us saw this coming 30 years ago.
Don’t they also,get like $3800 a month and housing?
Reagan: The closest thing to eternal life on earth is a temporary government program.
Never kind, looks like,they don’t get that much, might been Canadians that pay that amount not the us
Lol he did have a way with words
What a crock! They’re supposed to go to the nearest country away from the conflict. North America isn’t the nearest country by a long shot.
Mittens, I’m sure, is salivating at this “measure...’
“There is nothing more permanent than a temporary government program”
