You should have received a denial decision explaining the reasons. There are a number of reasons other than a criminal record for which TPS can be revoked/denied. Contact an immigration lawyer to advise you on the best course of action.
I agree with my colleagues. However, you may NOT be eligible for TPS or to maintain your existing TPS if you:
Have been convicted of any felony or two or more misdemeanors committed in the United States;
Are found inadmissible as an immigrant under applicable grounds in INA section 212(a), including non-waivable criminal and security-related grounds;
Are subject to any of the mandatory bars to asylum. These include, but are not limited to, participating in the persecution of another individual or engaging in or inciting terrorist activity;
Fail to meet the continuous physical presence and continuous residence in the United States requirements;
Fail to meet initial or late initial TPS registration requirements; or
If granted TPS, you fail to re-register for TPS, as required, without good cause.
Do consult with an experienced immigration attorney for guidance in this matter. NOTE: You have a limited time to file an appeal. Good luck to you.
