Temporary Protected Status - TPS - Immigration
8 C.F.R. 287.8(b)(2) provides that an immigration officer may briefly detain an individual only if the officer has "reasonable suspicion, based on specific articulable facts" that the person is engaged in an offense or is an alien illegally in the United States. This regulation is designed to benefit persons and aliens in the United States.
Under 8 U.S.C. 1158(a)(2)(B), an application has the burden of proving by clear and convincing evidence that he applied for asylum within one year of his arrival in the United States or, to satisfaction of the IJ, that he qualifies for an exception to the one-year deadline for the existence of "changed circumstances."
