In coalition with Nepali organizations based in the United States, including Adhikaar in New York, the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) are a part of a nation-wide movement to support humanitarian efforts for Nepal. The massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that shook Nepal has resulted in mass death and destruction. This devastation and tragedy has touched all of our hearts as the difficult relief efforts have begun.

NCAPA commends the Obama Administration for contributing to urgent relief efforts in Nepal. While the U.S. is directing much-needed relief aid to Nepal, another significant way we can help limit the strain on that country's resources is by designating Nepal for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under § 244(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
