To keep in mind
What kinds of temporary humanitarian reliefs are there in the United States?
There are different types of temporary relief or humanitarian benefits depending on your particular situation. If you meet the requirements, you can apply for DACA, TPS, T visa, U visa, VAWA or asylum. Get to know them below:
DACA - Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
DACA is the quintessential Dreamers program and has existed since 2012. It is based on deferred action, which is the prosecutorial discretion to defer removal or deportation action against a foreign national for a specified period of time.
Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
TPS, as its name implies, is a temporary protected status that is granted to people who are in the United States, who are nationals of a country designated for TPS, and who cannot return to their country because the Conditions in that country prevent them from returning safely.
To obtain a T visa, an applicant must show that he or she is or has been a victim of a severe form of human trafficking, is physically present in the United States due to such trafficking, and has assisted law enforcement agencies in the investigation or prosecution of acts of trafficking in persons.
The U visa benefits foreign nationals who have been the victims of certain criminal activities in the United States, as long as these individuals assist the appropriate authorities in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity. The U visa grants the beneficiary permission to work and live in the United States for a period of four years.
VAWA – Violence Against Women Act
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) allows individuals (both men and women) to apply for lawful permanent residence in the United States when they have been victims of extreme cruelty or abuse by a spouse or former spouse who is a US citizen or permanent resident; a parent who is a US citizen or permanent resident; a son or daughter who is a US citizen.
Asylum is a benefit that can be requested by people who are in the United States and can prove that they have suffered persecution or that they fear that they will suffer persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.
