Trump administration to end provisional residency for 200000 Salvadorans

Trump administration to end provisional residency for 200000 Salvadorans

Monday's pending announcement is in line with the Trump administration's wider goal of reducing legal immigration to the United States and increasing deportations, said Kevin Appleby of the New York-based Center for Migration Studies.

The approximately 262,000 Salvadorans that now have Temporary Protected Status (TPS) will have until September 9, 2019 to either change their immigration status, leave the USA or face potential deportation.

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday that damage inflicted by a 2001 natural disaster in the Central American country didn't justify another temporary extension.

President Donald Trump's decision signals a departure from the stance of previous administrations, which granted and re-authorized temporary protected status for Hondurans beginning in the late 1990s.

Ann Coulter applauded Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen's decision to rescind Temporary Protection Status for Salvadorans Monday, telling The Daily Caller, "They've got to go".

Temporary Protected Status is a special immigration status for people from a foreign country where the USA determines that conditions in that home country prevent those people from returning safely or where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, countries that receive Temporary Protection Status (TPS) are defined as having "ongoing armed conflict (such as civil war), an environmental disaster (such as quake or hurricane), or an epidemic, [and] other extraordinary and temporary conditions".

In November, the Trump administration said it was ending TPS for Haitians who came to the US after the deadly 2010 quake. Soon after, TPS was halted for 2,500 Nicaraguan migrants. The decision was criticized by Republican and Democratic lawmakers from Florida. Losing them could cost the USA about $280 million in contributions to gross domestic product, according to an analysis by the Immigrant Resource Center, which promotes immigrant rights.
