The United States will offer Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to Venezuelans in its territory, as announced in a press release by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas.

The decree resolves that close to 320,000 Venezuelans are eligible for humanitarian protection. Biden’s measure will be valid for 18 months, although it could be extended. In addition, it may only be requested by Venezuelans already in the U.S. by March 8, 2021.

The approval was celebrated by the Venezuelan community in the United States and by Florida Senator Marco Rubio.

“Venezuela remains a nation in crisis,” Rubio said in a statement. “I have long advocated for much-needed relief to assist qualifying Venezuelan citizens residing in the United States with a work permit and temporary solution, which is what the Trump administration did previously this year. I am glad that the Biden administration shares that commitment.”

Meanwhile, Carlos Vecchio, ambassador of Juan Guaidó, recognized president by the United States, said that “this measure will allow them to live, work and be legally protected in the United States, with the peace of mind that they will not be deported.”
