“I am (state your full name) from (name the state where you reside). I am calling you to urge you to support a grant of Temporary Protected Status to all the Nepalese citizens living in the United States. The recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal affected more than eight million people and resulted in eight thousand fatalities. 1.5 million homes were destroyed. The quake rendered thousands of homes unsafe for habitation. Living conditions are getting worse as the monsoon season arrives. There is a great need for the Nepalese living in the United States to return home and help our loved ones in these difficult times. Therefore, I strongly urge you to support –on purely humanitarian basis– a grant of Temporary Protected Status to Nepalese expatriates."
