Mercy Without Borders
If the children of Syria were able to survive the ongoing genocide, a greater tragedy than the current situation would be if they ended up dying of neglect. Thousands of orphans in Syria are going to sleep hungry every day. Mercy Without Borders is there to assure that the most vulnerable of all have an opportunity to survive. Due to the ongoing genocide in Syria, thousands of children all throughout the nation have been left without parents. These helpless children have no one to look after them and they are suffering on a daily basis in order to receive some of the most basic necessities. Mercy Without Borders emerged from the onset of the crisis and became recognized for its commitment to accountability, innovation and humanitarian collaboration.
Its work will takes them into the heart of Syrian communities, where will helpe children and widows to help themselves.
Victims of the civil violence are assailed by anxiety and fear. A child who has lost one parent or possibly both is trying to understand what is happening to him—yet in his heart of hearts, he knows this: he could possibly die. Mercy Without Borders is there to see that most of these babies, young children and their mothers do not die needlessly from preventable and treatable causes such as malnutrition, diarrhea and pneumonia. This is unacceptable. Basic nutrition and hygiene, vaccines, medicine, and access to frontline health workers are essential to child survival.
MAS Immigrant Justice and Mercy Without Borders are maximizing their humanitarian efforts. Together, we've joined forces to alleviate suffering of Syrian victims with services that bring relief and freedom from oppression. Join us in steering a course that provides immediate help.
On March 29, 2012, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that eligible Syrian nationals in the United States may apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which will provide immigration benefits to potentially thousands of Syrians living in the US. Muslim American Society Immigrant Justice Center has assisted with over 100 eligible Syrian petitioners in the first month, as well as political asylums.
Q: What is Temporary Protected Status (TPS)? A: TPS is a temporary immigration status granted to foreign nationals of certain countries who are in the U.S. and who cannot safely return to their home countries due to ongoing armed conflict, natural disasters, or other emergency conditions. Syrians granted TPS status may not be deported from the US; they can obtain work authorization; and they may be granted permission to travel.
Q: Why has Syria been designated for TPS? A: US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) stated that Syria has been designated for TPS status "due to the violent upheaval and deteriorating situation in Syria," referring to the yearlong, nationwide uprising against the Syrian regime and its crackdown on the opposition, which has claimed the lives of more than 15,000 Syrians, including women and children.
Q: Who is eligible for TPS status? A: Generally, any Syrian national who came to the US on or before March 29, 2012 is eligible for TPS status. Based on the humanitarian purpose of TPS relief, and unlike many other areas of US immigration law, Syrian nationals may be considered for TPS whether or not they have maintained valid immigration status. Muslim American Immigrant Justice Center (MASIJC) has accredited and qualified legal counsel, able to assist petitioners with their immigration needs. Our consultants can tell you if TPS is advantageous and whether any risks may apply.
