(CNN)The Biden administration on Saturday granted humanitarian protection for Haitians in the United States, allowing an estimated 100,000 people to apply to remain lawfully in the US, according to the Department of Homeland Security and an administration official.

The decision will allow Haitians in the US the opportunity to apply for Temporary Protected Status -- a form of humanitarian relief that can be granted when it is deemed unsafe to return to one's home country.

President Joe Biden tweeted a link to the announcement Saturday, writing, "Today my Administration announced a new 18 month designation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti. "

"As Haiti passes through an acute political and security crisis and faces enduring humanitarian challenges, this decision provides urgently needed protections for eligible Haitians in the United States," the New Jersey Democrat said in a statement.
