Inquirer: Decision on protected status for undocumented Filipino immigrants could come this week

Super Typhoon Haiyan
Supporters of granting special protected status to undocumented Filipinos in the United States have launched an 11th hour letter writing campaign to US Secretary of State John Kerry, reports the Inquirer.

A decision could come by Friday, according to advocates.

Temporary protected status has been granted in the past to Haitians and people from other countries that have been hit by war or natural disaster.

The push for TPS began shortly after Typhoon Haiyan to allow people to safetly return to the Philippines to help loved ones or legally work in this country so they can send money back to the Philippines.

The letter writing campaign is being lead by The Filipino American Legal Defense & Education Fund or FALDEF.

You can read more about the campaign and hear the thoughts of the person who successfully campaigned for TPS for Haitians in the Inquirer.
