The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) welcomes the Department of Homeland Security’s decision granting nationals of Nepal the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) effective June 24, 2016. The 180-day TPS registration period begins June 24, 2015 and runs through December 21, 2015. AHRC commends the DHS for granting this temporary relief to residents of Nepal in the USA.
On April 25, 2015 Nepal coped with a severe and strong earthquake that rocked the country and caused extreme damages and destruction as well as good number of civilians casualties. Since then and Nepal is trying to deal with the aftermath of such disaster despite the continued aftershocks.
