Extension of the Designation of Nicaragua for Temporary Protected Status
Document Number: 2014-24560
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-16
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
Through this Notice, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announces that the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) is extending the designation of Nicaragua for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months from January 6, 2015 through July 5, 2016. The extension allows currently eligible TPS beneficiaries to retain TPS through July 5, 2016 so long as they otherwise continue to meet the eligibility requirements for TPS. The Secretary has determined that an extension is warranted because the conditions in Nicaragua that prompted the TPS designation continue to be met. There continues to be a substantial, but temporary, disruption of living conditions in Nicaragua resulting from Hurricane Mitch, and Nicaragua remains unable, temporarily, to handle adequately the return of its nationals. Through this Notice, DHS also sets forth procedures necessary for nationals of Nicaragua (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Nicaragua) to re-register for TPS and to apply for renewal of their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Re-registration is limited to persons who have previously registered for TPS under the designation of Nicaragua and whose applications have been granted. Certain nationals of Nicaragua (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Nicaragua) who have not previously applied for TPS may be eligible to apply under the late initial registration provisions, if they meet: (1) At least one of the late initial filing criteria; and, (2) all TPS eligibility criteria (including continuous residence in the United States since December 30, 1998, and continuous physical presence in the United States since January 5, 1999). For individuals who have already been granted TPS under the Nicaraguan designation, the 60-day re-registration period runs from October 16, 2014 through December 15, 2014. USCIS will issue new EADs with a July 5, 2016 expiration date to eligible Nicaragua TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs under this extension. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re- registration applications, DHS recognizes that not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on January 5, 2015. Accordingly, through this Notice, DHS automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of Nicaragua for 6 months, through July 5, 2015, and explains how TPS beneficiaries and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended and their impact on Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and the E-Verify processes.

For individuals who have already been granted TPS under the Honduras designation, the 60-day re-registration period runs from October 16, 2014 through December 15, 2014. USCIS will issue new EADs with a July 5, 2016 expiration date to eligible Honduras TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs under this extension. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re- registration applications, DHS recognizes that not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on January 5, 2015. Accordingly, through this Notice, DHS automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of Honduras for 6 months, through July 5, 2015, and explains how TPS beneficiaries and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended and their impact on Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and the E-Verify processes.

Document Number: 2014-24171
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is changing the operating schedule that governs the General Edwards SR1A Bridge across the Saugus River at mile 1.7, between Revere and Lynn, Massachusetts. The bridge owner, Massachusetts Department of Transportation, submitted a request to require a two-hour advance notice for bridge openings at all times based upon infrequent requests to open the draw during past years. It is expected that this change to the regulations will create efficiency in drawbridge operations while continuing to meet the reasonable needs of navigation.
