Humanitarian Protection

The United States offer a number of humanitarian protections to assist individuals in need of shelter or aid from disasters, oppression, emergency medical issues and other urgent circumstances.

Examples of humanitarian benefits include:

Refugee and asylum seekers for those who have been persecuted or fear they will be persecuted based on race, religion, nationality, and/or membership in a particular social group or political opinion.

Victims of domestic abuse by U.S. citizens or permanent residents may file for immigration benefits without the abuser’s knowledge. Victims of human trafficking and other violent crimes may receive immigration status in certain circumstances. Humanitarian parole is sparingly used to bring someone otherwise inadmissible into the United States for a temporary period of time due to compelling emergencies.

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is granted to qualified people in the United States who are temporarily unable to return safely to their home country because of an extraordinary condition. **In January 21, 2010 the Department of Homeland Security has designated Haiti nationals for TPS.
