Washington: Myanmar has been witnessing continued barbaric protests following the military coup. Now the Myanmar residents living in the US would be allowed to stay on temporary status under the Biden administration. This is the latest response from the US after the incidents of the Myanmar coup in February.
Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs, said, “People are facing a humanitarian crisis in many parts of the nation due to military coup and brutal violence of security forces against Myanmar civilians.”
It is decided to nominate Myanmar for the TPS after considering the extraordinary circumstances in the country due to the military coup last month and named for so that the citizens of the country could live in the US unofficially.
Furthermore, Alejandro Mayurakas stated that temporarily-Temporary Protected Status (TPS) would be given to those who have come to the US due to unrest in their country. He further said that there is fear among the people from the continuous violence and deadly violence against peaceful protesters. In such a situation, the living conditions will be extended to the people of Myanmar who came to America by 11 March.
On the other hand, the central regime has become cautious in the refugee victims of India’s military coup taking refuge in India. The four northeastern states of Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, and Manipur, as well as the Assam Rifles, have been instructed to take appropriate steps to prevent the arrival of refugees from Myanmar, the victims of the military coup.
Recently, Amnesty International has stated that the Myanmar army is using weapons that are used against its official enemies in the war zone to suppress demonstrations against them. Importantly, after the nation’s collapse, thousands of individuals have protested in the streets protesting the operation of the army, which is still going on. The army is using Lethal Weapons on the demonstrators to suppress them.
