The Biden administration has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for nearly 10,000 Burmese nationals living in the U.S. through November 2025.

TPS prevents deportation and allows work authorization for migrants from countries deemed unsafe due to armed conflict, environmental disasters, or other temporary conditions.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas announced the extension and designation of TPS for eligible Burmese, along with “Special Student Relief” expanding work authorization for Burmese students.

TPS was created to shield those unable to safely return but critics say it has been transformed into de facto amnesty by successive administrations continuously renewing designations.

Biden in particular has vastly expanded TPS, keeping over 1 million otherwise removable foreign nationals in the country as part of a strategy to rapidly grow the foreign-born population size.
