President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has extended and redesignated a so-called “temporary” amnesty to 4,000 Yemeni nationals living in the United States, ensuring they are not deported and can hold American jobs.

On Monday, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced the extension and redesignation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for thousands of Yemeni nationals in the United States who would otherwise be eligible for deportation.

Yemen nationals with TPS will be able to remain in the United States and hold American jobs through March 2026 as long as they claim that they were in the country as of early July of this year.

In addition, Mayorkas announced so-called “Special Student Relief” for Yemeni nationals who are in the United States on F-1 student visas {snip}

Today, nearly 900,000 foreign nationals in the U.S. are shielded from deportation after having secured TPS. The vast majority are from Venezuela, Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, and Ukraine.
