The beneficiaries

On August 21, President Joe Biden’s administration reported that it will issue work permits to Venezuelan immigrants, EFE recalls.

According to what was published by Tiempo Latino, Hochul indicated that these 18,000 new jobs “are available to Venezuelan immigrants eligible for the extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

The media added that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin accepting TPS extension applications from Venezuelans on Tuesday, October 3.

Which immigrants will benefit from the five-year extension of work permits in the United States?

With the expansion of the TPS, “the number of Venezuelans who could obtain a permit to work and reside in the United States increases from 242,700 to 472,000,” according to a statement from the Department of Homeland Security published by El Universo on September 23 . .

The TPS will be expanded and will benefit Venezuelans who arrived before July 31 this year, El Universo published on September 23.

According to Governor Hochul, Tiempo Latino said, these new jobs for Venezuelan immigrants would “relieve” the pressure on New York’s immigration situation. In addition, the number of migrants living in shelters in the city will decrease.”

This is clear, Hochul noted, “they have come to work, so let’s put them to work; “Let’s do it.”
