"What is TPS? Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a temporary immigration benefit given to nationals of a particular country due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning there safely, or where the country is not able to adequately handle the return of its nationals." - Read More: Temporary Protected Status by B. Gay

In 2010 after the terrible Haiti Earthquake, many Haitians filed for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

When I met my ex, he introduced me to many whom were living in Little Haiti, the Miami area nicknamed so because a large population of immigrants from Haiti inhabit there. A priest whom was popular in that area got the spot recognized as Little Haiti. The history is quite interesting since the area is also know as Lemon City for it citrus tree distinction in olden days or Little River. Either way, a large number who emigrated there by the boat loads from Haiti reside there whether legally or not. This TPS matter are for those who were protected from deportation based on having temporary protection rights. Haiti and it's government could not adequately handle the safe return of its citizens for a great period of time. So many applied for protected status. Whether they fully understood its limitations, cannot say. The information provided by Homeland Security is pretty straightforward. The form for it is, Form I - 821, Application for Temporary Protected Status provided by the Department for Homeland Security. It can also be found on the below mentioned attorneys website, Law Office of B. Gay.
