This week, the House passed a bipartisan bill that would grant Temporary Protected Status to Venezuelans.

The TPS bill, which is sponsored by Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R) and Rep. Darren Soto (D), now heads to the U.S. Senate for consideration in time for the House to leave Washington for a six-week recess.

With a vote of 272 to 158, the bill would give Venezuelans not only the ability to live in the United States, but they would also have the ability to legally work in the country as well.
