Existing TPS for Yemenis extended:“In the fourth year of what the UN secretary general called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, the Trump administration is once again demonstrating a disregard for basic humanitarian principles in its decision to merely extend Temporary Protected Status for some people from Yemen, but not allow recent arrivals to be covered by it.”
