On Monday, March 8, 2021, the White House announced that Venezuelans who are currently present in the United States will be granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS). This Executive Order will allow tens of thousands of Venezuelans to legally remain in the United States on a temporary basis.
In recent years, it’s estimated that 4 million Venezuelans have fled their country due to extreme poverty, hunger, disease, and the repression of President Nicolas Maduro. More than 800,000 of these individuals have sought asylum in other countries and Venezuela has become the top country of origin for asylum seekers in the United States.
