  SUPPORT SYRIANS WITH T.P.S. TODAY!!                 A decision regarding 6,900 Syrians with Temporary Protected Status is expected today or tomorrow from DHS.
  
Call DHS & Congress NOW!

      I.  Help save Syrian lives TODAY as you: 
    
1)  CALL DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY (DHS) COMMENT LINE:
202-282-8495.  Remind them of the U.S. State Dept.'s own view above, and urge they re-designate and extend TPS protections for Syrians!

2)  CALL YOUR U.S. REPRESENTATIVES & SENATORS at 202-224-3121 to ask them to also call DHS, and to make a statement in support of TPS re-designation and extension. The number above will link you with your Senators & Representatives if you share your zip code.

3)  LEARN ABOUT AND PRAY FOR SYRIANS as you read this report, "No Safety in a Warzone," from faith partners:  https://cliniclegal.org/sites/default/files/resources/No-Safety-in-a-Warzone.pdf.  Also, see a faith support letter for Syrian TPS at: http://www.interfaithimmigration.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Interfaith-TPS-Letter-Syria-January-23-2018.pdf.  Use these to find further talking points as you talk with DHS and your leaders.

4) SHARE MESSAGES ON TWITTER & FACEBOOK using the tag #SaveTPS and images from Syria.

5)  IF YOU KNOW SYRIAN REFUGEES OR TPS HOLDERS, tell DHS and your leaders and community about what your relationship with them means to you, and the dangers present in their homeland that make returning unsafe.
