Trump Administration Tells 200000 Salvadorans To Leave Or Get Deported

DHS to end protections for some Salvadoran immigrants NHCSL Blasts DHS Decision On TPS For Salvadorans
Faye Gross | 09 January, 2018, 00:28

The US Department of Homeland Security confirmed that it is ending special protections for the immigrants. This decision will harm almost 200,000 Salvadoran TPS holders, and their over 190,000 USA citizen children.

The government's Temporary Protected Status for Salvadoran immigrants will not be renewed after being in place since 2001, the government announced.

Salvadorans are the largest group by far with temporary protected status.

The first TPS designation for El Salvador expired in 1992, but country conditions did not improve, so those original TPS recipients were granted "deferred enforcement departure" through 1995. She delayed a decision affecting more than 50,000 Hondurans, foisting the decision onto Nielsen.

The administration is granting an 18-month delay so that Salvadorans here under TPS can make arrangements to depart or can apply for other statuses if they qualify. That decision prompted heavy pressure from the White House to end the protections, sources said, though Duke later denied accounts that said she felt distressed and disappointed by the interference from Kelly.

Immigration advocates say that ending the protections will cause major issues for El Salvador, a country of 6.2 million people. There are more than 260,000 Salvadoran immigrants with the status in the United States, including more than 36,000 in Texas, according to the Center for American Progress.

When the protections end, recipients revert to the status they have otherwise, which would likely leave a number of Salvadorans undocumented after almost two decades of legally working and living in the United States.

The Trump administration has indicated for months that it believes the "temporary" in "temporary protected status" has been wrongly overlooked for too long. It also comes after President Donald Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which granted deportation relief and work permits to almost 700,000 current recipients. "We'd be very disappointed to see TPS extended yet again - with no credible justification".

"The past practice of allowing foreign nationals to remain in the United States long after an initial emergency in their home countries has ended has undermined the integrity of the program and essentially made the "temporary" protected status a front operation for backdoor permanent immigration", Beck said.

Salvadoran immigrant Orlando Zepeda, who came to the U.S.in 1984 to flee civil war, said he wasn't surprised by Monday's decision given the administration's position on other countries.

President Donald Trump, accompanied by Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, speaks during a meeting with Republican Senators on immigration at the White House in Washington on January 4, 2018.

Oscar Chacón, executive director of Alianza Americas, a network of Latin American and Caribbean immigrant groups in the USA, said the decision puts the Salvadorans in danger. "These are Salvadorans who have been living in the United States with work permission for nearly 20 years. And the idea that we're going to try to drive them back to a country that is engulfed in weak governance and corruption and violence is unthinkable". These are people who are American in all but their paperwork.
