What is Temporary Protected Status (TPS)?

TPS inatoa ulinzi kwa watu nchini Marekani ambaye hawezi salama kwenda nyuma katika nchi yao. Hii inaweza kuwa kwa sababu ya vita au kwa sababu ya majanga ya asili. TPS inatumika kwa baadhi ya watu kutoka nchi kumi tu.

TPS offers protection to people in the United States who cannot safely go back to their homeland. This may be because of conflict or because of natural disasters. TPS applies to some people from just ten countries.

TPS inaruhusu watu kukaa katika Marekani na kufanya kazi kisheria, lakini ni si kuwapa uraia au kadi ya kijani. Wamiliki wa TPS unaweza kukaa angalau miezi sita. Baadhi ya wamiliki wa TPS imekuwa kuruhusiwa kukaa kwa zaidi ya miaka kumi.

TPS allows people to stay in the United States and work legally, but it does not give them citizenship or a green card. TPS holders can stay at least six months. Some TPS holders have been allowed to stay for more than ten years.
