A few weeks ago, a small group of tech entrepreneurs launched an app that would let undocumented immigrants who’ve been working in the U.S. for more than a decade to apply for temporary work permits, instead of having to wait for a green card.
Now, more than 300,000 have signed up for the program.
The app, called Tps, is a collaboration between TPC, a company that helps people get visas and green cards, and The American Immigration Council, a lobbying group that helps immigration advocates.
The Tps app lets people apply online to work for tech companies or nonprofits, and then have the company’s software run a background check and send them an invitation to apply to a tech company.
The company will also send a check to the employer’s account, and the employee will get a refund of any taxes paid.

The app is the latest effort to address a widespread problem: the inability of undocumented immigrants to get green cards.
For a lot of people, it’s a hassle and a drag.
In a survey conducted last year by the Center for Immigration Studies, about one in five immigrant households said that they were unable to apply or get green card status because they had been in the country longer than five years.
But the lack of green cards for people in this group has been a big problem for many immigrant families.
It can be hard to find a place to live when your children have kids, your grandkids have kids or you are dealing with a spouse or child who has been living in the United States for more time than you.
It’s also a problem for undocumented immigrants with jobs that require long hours, or for immigrants who don’t speak English well enough to get a green-card, because they don’t have a passport to show for it.
Tps offers the most effective solution: it sends the employer a bill.
It will also notify employers and the federal government of the amount of taxes paid, so they can decide whether to accept the payment.
And because it is a service that the app will be used for, Tps will make it easy for the employer to track who is applying for the green card and to get those applications processed.
The app is available for free in the App Store and Google Play.
Tps will work with the National Immigration Law Center to get the app approved by the Federal Trade Commission.
In addition to the $50 refund, the app lets employers and nonprofit organizations to opt-in for the Tps program.
They will get their own checks to pay taxes and make sure they get paid, and they will also get to keep the money they make from the TPS program.
And since Tps is free, it should be a great way to get your company to pay for the tax refund.
“This app is one of the best tools we’ve seen for undocumented workers who want to stay in the US, but don’t know how to get into the country legally,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of the Center on Immigration and Border Security at Georgetown University’s Center on Global Migration.
A big benefit of Tps was that it didn’t require employers to pay workers’ wages.
It was a great opportunity for the tech sector to find and recruit a workforce that they can employ.
That means that, if someone is looking to get an IT job or someone who works for a nonprofit, they can still apply for the app without paying their own wages.
And it means that those employers will pay taxes, as well.
In addition to making sure the apps are approved by Congress, TPS is also designed to be easy to use.
Employers can set up a website, and Tps can show them how to use it to submit their applications, so people don’t need to worry about having to go through the hassle of filling out forms or go to a job interview.
If the company that is using Tps doesn’t pay taxes on the money that goes into the app, the employee can also use the app to pay the federal income tax.
The companies that use Tps are also required to pay tax on any income they receive from Tps.
If a company decides to discontinue using TPS, it will also have to pay a $50 fine.
The government has fined a number of tech companies for using the Tp program, and in some cases it has been so harsh that tech companies have withdrawn from the program entirely.
TPS offers a variety of options for people who want the most out of their time in the States.
And while Tps isn’t a panacea for all of the problems that immigrants face, it does provide a solution to a common problem.
And that is that there are so many people in the tech industry who are doing so much to help immigrants who are here illegally, and for whom the American dream is more important than their personal financial security.
