It is no secret that President Trump is against foreigners living in the U.S. Even before he became president, he planned building a wall between Mexico and U.S. The Trump administration recently ended the residence permit for about 50,000 Haitians and 2,500 Nicaraguans. Now, it has taken on the Salvadorans. The administration also said that it may soon eliminate protections for about 57,000 Hondurans. The Department of Homeland Security has announced that the administration will end temporary protected status (TPS) for natives of El Salvador.
That means nearly 1 million people currently allowed to live and work in the U.S. will soon be at risk of deportation unless they can find another way to gain legal status. The Trump administration has indicated for months that it believes the “temporary” in “temporary protected status” has been wrongly overlooked for too long. Congressional Research Service puts the present number of Salvadoran TPS recipients at about 260,000.
