Philippine government formerly requests TPS designation from the United States in light of the long-term devastation caused by typhoon

In an announcement dated December 16, 2013 the Philippines announced that it officially requested TPS designation from the Department of Homeland Security, DHS, in its efforts to recover from the typhoon that devastated the region and assist its citizens at home and abroad. The announcement states as follows:

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The Philippines has formally requested Washington for additional immigration relief measures to allow eligible Filipinos to stay and work in the United States so they could support the country's long-term post-typhoon recovery efforts, the Department of Foreign Affairs announced Monday, 16 December.
