Hi! My name is Aquilina Soriano Versoza and I am the Executive Director of the Pilipino Workers Center of Southern California. We have a very short time to try to get the Philippines designated as having Temporary Protected Status. TPS would stop deportations of Filipinos in America and provide them with temporary working authorization (but no green cards). This would allow everyone to stop worrying about deportations and for Filipinos both in the Philippines and the US to focus on the relief and rebuilding efforts. We need everyone's help! Here is a link to the support sign I am holding in the picture. Print it out, take a picture and post your own with a story about why you support!

TPS is a temporary form of humanitarian aid that will empower Filipinos here in the US to more effectively aid their own home country. Filipino immigrants are already sending back millions of dollars in remittances every year. TPS would ensure that Filipinos in the U.S. would be protected from deportation and granted work authorization to enable them to continue working.
