There are reports that the Biden administration is considering protecting certain Ukrainians living in the United States from deportation due to Russia's military attack against Ukraine. The deportation relief could be authorized through a Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas or a Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) order by President Biden. Potential beneficiaries could include Ukrainians with temporary U.S. visas, including students at American universities, as well as those without legal status. Individuals with this status may be able to legally work in the United States. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will reach out to our clients in the event the administration offers TPS or DED to Ukrainian citizens.
