USCIS Issues Memo Clarifying Misdemeanor for TPS purposes


USCIS released a memo entitled "Temporary Protected Status Adjudications Involving "No Jail" or "No Incarceration" Certifications, and Reminder for Cases Involving Certain Potential Misdemeanors"

USCIS clarified that not all crimes are automatically misdemeanors, especially if offense does not carry any jail or incarceration.  This may be positive news for many how are convicted of small offenses.
