More than 600 Interfaith Leaders and Organizations Fight Together for Honduran TPS Holders
In a letter delivered to the administration on April 27, 2018, 122 faith-based organizations and 518 faith leaders from across traditions stand united in calling on the Department of Homeland Security to protect nearly 60,000 Honduran Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders and their families, including 53,000 U.S. citizen children. The administration must decide by May 6, 2018 whether to extend or terminate TPS for Honduras.
The letter, rooted in both legal and moral principles says, “As people of faith, we are called to provide hospitality and protect those who are in need of safety. These same values have been confirmed and codified through international agreements and in U.S. law, which recognizes that people have a right to seek safety from dangerous conditions that threaten their lives. Such life-threatening conditions are present in Honduras today and would pose a serious risk to the health and safety of Honduran TPS holders if they were to be returned.”
