TPS and Unlawful PresenceIndividuals who have been grantedtemporary protected status (TPS) are alsoconsidered to be in a period of stayauthorized by the attorney general. Thisperiod begins on the date a prima facieTPS application is filed, if the application isultimately approved. If the application isdenied or does not establish prima facieeligibility, unlawful presence beginsaccruing from the date the individual’s

TPS and concurrent NIV statusstatute explicitly provides that a nonimmigrant alien is not required torelinquish status to obtain TPS and thatTPS is not inconsistent with the granting ofnon-immigrant statusgood idea for anyone who qualifies toregister for TPS as a back-up oralternative plan and maintain nonimmigrant status as long as possible aswell.Travel? Requirement for advanced parole

TPS and travelMay travel with permission; must apply forand receive advanced parole beforetravelingTravel and unlawful presence is complicatedand beyond the scope of this presentation.If you have had time out of status or timein the US without authorization, talk to animmigration attorney before leaving theUS.

TPS & change of statusMay adjust or change status and is considered in non-immigrant status forthose purposesCan apply for asylum, but the mere designation of country is not proof ofeligibility.Aliens granted TPS prior to the expiration of their authorized stay, are notsubject to INA §222(g) if they remain in TPS status throughout their stay inthe United States. If the TPS grant is made after the alien’s authorized stayhas expired, or if the alien stays in the United States after the TPS statushas expired, then §222(g) would apply.

Some AdviceDon’t get arrested. Don’t be in situations that could leadto an arrest or trouble.If you do get arrested/cited/ charged, talk to animmigration attorney and a criminal attorney rightaway.Be careful about taking immigration and criminal advicefrom friends.Be diligent with your documents and expiration dates.Register every time (unless you become a permanentresident).
