Employment Opportunities For Immigrants
Last Monday, October 2, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced that thousands of jobs will soon be available for immigrants.
Venezuelans will be the only nationality eligible for the extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Hochul pointed out that the state Department of Labor has identified 18,000 available positions across nearly 400 employers.
This will apply to Venezuelans who have been granted temporary legal status by the Biden Administration.
Thousands will be chosen
The governor’s announcement came just one day before a statement from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
USCIS announced that it will begin accepting applications for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) starting this Tuesday.
According to the agency’s website, the application window will remain open until April 2025.
Furthermore, a press release from the agency estimates that approximately 472,000 Venezuelans will be eligible to apply for TPS.
She gave statements
The governor emphasized that this initiative will alleviate pressure on New York’s immigration crisis by reducing the number of people in shelters throughout the city.
Hochul also stated that this measure will help resolve the manpower crisis in the state.
«The key is so simple, so crystal clear,» Hochul said.
«They have come to work, so let’s put them to work. Let’s do it,» she added.
Want a solution
«We have a two-for-one solution. Now we have all of these people. They want to be here, and I have all these open jobs,» she said.
«If you put the two things together, you’ve solved the problem,» Hochul added.
Similarly, Andrew Rigie, Executive Director of the New York City Hospitality Alliance & Impact Foundation, expressed his support for the initiative.
Considering that it will benefit the hospitality sector, which has not yet fully recovered from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
New York without capacity
According to information from CNN, despite describing the initiative as a «good start,» Governor Hochul stated that she will continue advocating for the federal government.
This to expand work authorizations to more asylum seekers since New York is already operating at full capacity.
«We can only help those who are here. Let’s do it,» she said.
«We’re going to focus on them, but we also have to be aware that this is not an open invitation to everyone,» she added.
