The US Department of Internal Safety announced Friday by communiqué that the United States now granted the status of "temporary protection" to Cameroonian nationals settled in their territory.

Despite the degradation of the security situation in Cameroon, during the Trump administration, the US courts have continued to reduce the number of Asylums granted to Cameroonian applicants, who dropped by 24% between 2019 and 2020.
