National TPS Alliance Endorses the SECURE Act, Senate Bill Aimed to Protect TPS Holders
Nationwide — On Tuesday, Senator Chris Van Hollen (MD) re-introduced the Safe Environment from Countries Under Repression and Emergency Act (SECURE Act) which would allow TPS holders from 13 countries to adjust for permanent residence.
The National TPS Alliance Executive Committee Issued the following statement in support of the bill:
“The SECURE Act is an all-inclusive legislation that ensures permanent protections for all TPS holders. Hundreds of thousands of families are currently stuck in legal limbo and vulnerable to being separated from their families, this bill would change that. We applaud Senator Chris Van Hollen (MD) for listening to the voices of our community, and responding with a robust permanent solution. We also understand that bipartisan support is required for any legislation to pass the senate and we remain committed to transparent and open collaboration that will ensure this bill becomes law.”
Senators Van Hollen, Cardin, Feinstein, and Kaine were joined in introducing this legislation by Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), and Tina Smith (D-Minn.). The text of the bill can be found here.
