Humanitarian Relief

When terrible events happen in other nations, the United States does not ignore the disaster’s harm to foreign nationals. To assist foreign nationals in distress, Congress enacted laws allowing the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) to provide humanitarian relief. In addition to asylum and refugee status, DHS manages a few other humanitarian programs: humanitarian parole, military parole-in-place, the Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program, temporary protected status, and U-1 visas for crime victims.
