HIAS and seven other Jewish groups have asked the Biden Administration to extend protected status to Israelis in the United States who fear returning to a warzone. The request comes after the US announced that Temporary Protected Status would be extended to Palestinians. The letter asks for Israelis to be granted Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure, which would allow them to work legally in the US. The Jewish groups argue that if Palestinians are eligible for these statuses due to the Israel-Hamas war, Israelis should also be included.
