Petition to Designate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to the Philippines


Friends, we started an online petition on a great website called In the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan that devastated the Philippines and took the lives of thousands, we want President Obama and the Department of Homeland Security to designate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to the Philippines.

The United States can grant TPS to a country that faces "extraordinary and temporary" conditions. It is usually designated when there is a massive natural disaster or incredible political turmoil. TPS was granted to Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010 and recently to Syria in light of the turmoil and unrest. The Philippines have experienced a disaster warranting TPS.

Please consider signing and sharing the petition.
