Latest News

The Department of Homeland Security on July 7, 2021 published a Federal Register notice (FRN) extending and re-designating Yemen for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, from Sept. 4, 2021, through March 3, 2023. 

The extension of TPS for Yemen allows approximately 1,700 current beneficiaries to retain TPS through March 3, 2023, so long as they meet TPS eligibility requirements. The re-designation of Yemen for TPS allows an estimated 480 additional Yemeni nationals (or individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Yemen) who have been continuously residing in the United States since July 5, 2021, and continuously physically present in the United States since Sept. 4, 2021, to file initial applications to obtain TPS, if they are otherwise eligible.

Current beneficiaries re-registering under the extension of TPS for Yemen must re-register in a timely manner during the 60-day registration period that runs from July 9, 2021, through Sept. 7, 2021, to ensure they keep their TPS and work authorization without a gap.

Under the re-designation of Yemen, eligible individuals who do not have TPS may submit an initial Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, during the initial registration period that runs from July 9, 2021, through the full length of the re-designation period ending March 3, 2023. Applicants are also eligible to apply for TPS-related Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) and for travel authorization



Biden administration extends temporary work permissions for some undocumented immigrants who are victims of crimes, and are applying or have applied for U-visa status.

The U visa provides a path for undocumented immigrants to become legal permanent residents  for victims of certain crimes, including domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. Congress only allows the government to issue 10,000 such visas a year, leaving many other applicants on a waiting list for future years and vulnerable to deportation.

Under this new policy, the government will make faster decisions about whether to grant four-year work permits to immigrants waiting for U visa determinations. This will give applicants the ability to “work and remain safely in the United States while they provide valuable support to law enforcement to detect, investigate or prosecute the serious crimes they have survived or witnessed,”

What our customers are saying

I don’t even know where to begin…I could write a book about my family’s case and how much Isabel has helped us. It is very hard to find a lawyer that will actually care so much about your case to a point it becomes personal to her, where she would sacrifice her own time just to help you and give you results. The level of integrity, honesty and trust is indescribable. My family and I had a previous lawyer, and all he cared about was when he was next getting paid. With Isabel, she actually loves and believes in what she does and her primary goal was to bring resolution to our family. You can’t really know what I’m saying unless you go through what we went through, when all doors are closed on you and things look impossible, when you have very little hope. But now we have 4 green cards and I’m a US Citizen. We are all living with a peace of mind here in this beautiful country that we didn’t have until we went to Isabel Machado. Can never thank you enough.
