U.S. Temporary Protected Status Program Ending Next Month For Refugees From Ebola-Affected Nations

STAT: Amnesty for refugees from Ebola-affected countries expires next month
“Thousands of immigrants allowed entry to the U.S. to escape from West Africa’s recent Ebola outbreak now face deportation, as the program that allowed them residence is ending. An estimated 5,900 immigrants from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone arrived in the U.S. under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program between 2014 and 2016. However the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services confirmed this week that the program will expire May 21…” (Samuel, 4/21).
