Padilla, Lofgren Call on Biden Administration to Provide Protections for Ukrainians

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator Alex Padilla and Representative Zoe Lofgren (both D-Calif), chairs of the Senate and House Judiciary Subcommittees on Immigration, released the following statement calling on the Biden Administration to designate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Ukraine:

“Ukraine is under assault in a brazen and unprovoked invasion by Russia that has the potential to create the largest refugee crisis in Europe since World War II. The Biden administration must work with allies in the region to provide refugee and humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians fleeing Russian aggression, and should take immediate action to designate Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure to protect Ukrainian nationals in the US.”
