Trump Administration to End Temporary Protected Status For 250,000 Salvadoran Immigrants

The Trump administration will end protections for certain nationals of El Salvador, a move that could leave more than 250,000 immigrants who have lived in the US more than 15 years without any legal status, the Department of Homeland Security announced Monday. The termination will come with an 18-month delay, as the administration also recently did in ending other recent Temporary Protected Status for other countries. That time will allow individuals who have lived under the status to either seek other means of staying in the US or prepare to leave. The widely expected move culminates a series of similar decisions from the Trump administration to substantially curtail the use of Temporary Protected Status -- a protection from deportation and authorization to live and work legally for nationals of countries that have suffered a disaster such as war, an epidemic or natural disasters. The administration has pushed to strongly curtail the use of TPS, a protection provided for by law, saying that the repeated extensions of the typically two-year protections by previous administrations of both parties have ended the "temporary" piece of the status.
