The United States of America is set to accord temporary protected status to Cameroonian Immigrants fleeing the Anglophone crisis.
“The United States,” its Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas said, “…. recognizes the ongoing armed conflict in Cameroon, and we will provide temporary protection to those in need.”
“Cameroonian nationals currently residing in the U.S. who cannot safely return due to the extreme violence perpetrated by government forces and armed separatists, and a rise in attacks led by Boko Haram, will be able to remain and work in the United States until conditions in their home country improve,” he added.
This has been received by many with relief, as some had been denied entry into the US and others deported, leaving them stranded.
