People who were granted Temporary Protected Status years ago to live in the U.S. because of instability in their home countries have become essential parts of their communities here in America. They should be allowed to apply for legal permanent resident status so they can continue those contributions.
The Temporary Protected Status program is designed to temporarily allow people whose home countries are in turmoil to live and work in the U.S. until the situation in their homeland stabilizes. It shouldn’t last forever, and if those people want to return they can choose to go through the immigration process.
