We are the "Relief 2 Recovery” national coalition advocating for TPS for the Philippines. Our coalition represents millions of Filipino-Americans impacted by Typhoon Haiyan through their families and communities, as well as thousands of other U.S. citizens and organizational allies, in a nationwide movement for TPS and other humanitarian efforts for the Philippines. http://tps4filipinos.org

TPS for Filipinos NOW

Typhoon Haiyan wrought unprecedented devastation when it rampaged across the Central Philippines, leaving almost 6,000 people dead and more than 27,000 injured. Haiyan also displaced more than 4 million people, affected 12 million others and left hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. Thus, for the Philippines to reabsorb hundreds of thousands of its nationals currently inside the U.S. – in addition to the aforedescribed national refugee situation that it desperately seeks to control – would overburden an already strained infrastructure, possibly to the brink of collapse. 

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) would stop deportations and provide working authorization that will empower Filipinos in the US to more effectively aid their own home country. DHS and USCIS acted quickly in a very similar circumstances to designate Haiti and El Salvador for TPS after massive earthquakes. That response can and should be repeated for the Philippines.
