The US said it will extend temporary protections for immigrants from Yemen for another two years, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
The Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for immigrants from other countries around the world is ending; however, the Trump Administration decided to extend TPS for Yemeni immigrants because the country remains engulfed in a brutal civil war.
Therefore, the White House will allow about 1,250 Yemenis to remain in the United States for at least another 18 months.
The measure known as TPS enables its holders to work while in the United States.
About 6,000 Syrians were granted a similar TPS extension in January.
However, the Trump administration has ended TPS provision for immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua and Sudan.
