"Through this notice, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announces actions to ensure its continued compliance with the preliminary injunction orders of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in Ramos, et al. v. Nielsen, et al., No. 18–cv–01554 (N.D. Cal. Oct. 3, 2018) (‘‘Ramos’’) and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York in Saget, et al., v. Trump, et al., No. 18–cv–1599 (E.D.N.Y.

Mar. 12, 2019) (‘‘Bhattarai’’). Beneficiaries under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations for El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan will retain their TPS while the preliminary injunction in Ramos remains in effect, provided that an alien’s TPS is not withdrawn because of individual ineligibility.

This notice further provides information on the automatic extension of the validity of TPS-related Employment Authorization Documents (EADs); Notices of Action (Forms I–797); and Arrival/Departure Records (Forms I–94), (collectively ‘‘TPS-related documentation’’); for those beneficiaries under the TPS designations for El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan. DATES: DHS is automatically extending the validity of TPS-related documentation for beneficiaries under the TPS designations for El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Sudan, as specified in this notice.
