The National Association of Evangelicals was one of 177 organizations that joined together in a letter to President Joseph Biden and his administration requesting an immediate 18-month designation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) and Special Student Relief (SSR) for Ukraine.
