As of Dec. 5, anyone from Haiti was allowed to apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) as long as they get into the U.S., in a recent announcement by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
This is an extension for 18 months " for an additional 18 months, from February 4, 2023, through August 3, 2024, due to extraordinary and temporary conditions in Haiti."
Haiti is part of a list of 4 other South American countries where anyone can apply for TPS status:
But on Oct. 21, 2022, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas announced a new designation of Ethiopia for TPS for 18 months from Dec. 12, 2022, through June 12, 2024.

Ethiopia is part of a list of 4 other African countries where anyone can apply for temporary protected status (TPS), as long as they can get into the U.S.:
There are 6 other countries as well where anyone can apply to get temporary protected status (TPS) as long as they can get into the U.S. somehow:
That makes 16 countries in total where anyone who is not a criminal can now apply to get TPS benefits as long as they into the U.S.
Bottom Line: Open Doors Under Biden – Even for a Job
In fact, while they are waiting to get asylum in the U.S., these TPS people can often apply for and immediately get approval to travel out of the U.S. (form I-131), and also a work permit called an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
The last one is very important for many people as it allows them to work in the U.S. as soon as they get here, whether or not they get asylum. All they have to do is fill out form I-765 and pay the fee (it is not cheap, though at $410 for anyone ages 14-65 years old).
The bottom line here is that just about anyone, who is not a criminal or terrorist, and gets into the U.S., stays here, and applies for work status, can immediately get an EAD allowing them to work.
Never mind whether they actually have asylum status, or whether others who don't get into the U.S. illegally and are on a visa wait list would rather have a job in the U.S., or whether Americans who are unemployed need a job.
This is the main reason why hordes of undocumented migrants are rushing to get into the U.S. from South America, Africa, and/or the Middle East during the Biden Administration's lax immigration enforcement rules.
