The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA)  reiterates its call upon the DHS to consider granting TPS to the nationals of Yemen who are in the US due to the escalating war and conflict since March of 2015. AHRC and several other community organizations requested that the DHS review this matter so nationals of Yemen avoid a precarious legal existence. The situation in Yemen is very alarming and very dangerous where no area in Yemen can be claimed a safe-haven for people. Yemen today is facing a true humanitarian crisis where people lack the basic living needs. We believe that Yemenis in the US who are subject to removal deserve the humanitarian measure of TPS. It is important to note that the crisis in Yemen does not seem to be heading for a resolution in the near future.

AHRC renews its call for DHS to approve the petition filed on April 22, 2015 by the American Arab Anti- Discrimination Committee (ADC), the National Association of Yemeni Americans (NAYA), the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Yemeni American Association (YAA), the Yemeni American Benevolent Association (YABA), and the Yemeni American Civil Rights Coalition (YACRC) requesting TPS for Yemen.
