Beneficiaries under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations for Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador will retain their TPS while the preliminary injunction remains in effect, provided that an individual’s TPS status is not withdrawn under INA section 244(c)(3) or 8 CFR 244.14 because of ineligibility.
Through this Federal Register Notice, DHS automatically extends through April 2, 2019, the validity of EADs with the category codes“A-12” or “C-19” and one of the expiration dates shown below that have been issued under the TPS designations of Sudan and Nicaragua:
11/02/2017; 01/05/2018; 11/02/2018; 01/05/2019
However, the extension of this validity period applies only if the eligible TPS beneficiary properly filed for TPS re-registration during the most recent DHS-announced registration period for the applicable country, or has a re-registration application that remains pending. In addition, the extension does not apply if the TPS of any such individual has been finally withdrawn.
If it becomes necessary to comply with statutory requirements for TPS re-registration during the pendency of the Court’s Order or any superseding court order concerning the beneficiaries under the TPS designations for Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador, DHS may announce re-registration procedures in a future Federal Register
Notice. See section 244(c)(3)(C) of the INA; 8 CFR 244.17.
