Why We Must Not Look Away From Trump's Attacks on Salvadoran Immigrants

Anti-immigration fever strikes again

Anti-immigration fever strikes again

"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."

The Trump administration said Monday it is ending special protections for Salvadoran immigrants, an action that could force almost 200,000 to leave the U.S.by September 2019 or face deportation.

The United States has a special obligation to Salvadoran immigrants because USA policy, including funding a decade-long civil war and promoting free trade policies that harm farmers, contributed to the root causes of migration.

Opportunities for young people in El Salvador are scant; only half of Salvadoran youth attend junior high school, and only half of those complete high school. Homes, school, and hospitals were repaired and rebuilt since a massive 2001 quake. He moved to Las Vegas from Los Angeles shortly after receiving a work permit. She and her husband have TPS status but their daughters are USA citizens. A similar revocation of TPS for Honduran migrants is expected later this year.

"I said that I would pull back on that to see how [Ryan] would do".

"Not only will terminating TPS for 200,000 Salvadoran workers take away their livelihoods and the life they've spent decades building here, but it will tear apart hundreds of thousands of families with mixed immigration statuses, including many with American-born children", she said. His office is working to coordinate an event next week for free legal screenings in response to Monday's announcement. And Mark Silverman, a lawyer for the Immigrant Legal Resource Center in San Francisco, told The New York Times that anyone arrested after losing TPS is entitled to a deportation hearing.

"There is not an option for most of these people without Congress acting", Keller said. "America is better than this and I will do all I can in the next 18 months to fight this awful decision and work with my colleagues to pass bipartisan legislation to help regularize the residency status of long-term TPS holders". The size of the wall Mr. Trump envisions is dwarfed only by its monumental stupidity - not only because it would do nothing to reduce the number of people who simply overstay their visas (which represents two-thirds of what has been a shrinking problem anyway) but because the administration is said to be proposing spending less on proven border security tactics like surveillance, radar and patrol boats to help pay for an $18 billion monstrosity.

No trip to London since embassy site is a 'bad deal'
In Washington, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump's comment was exclusively about an embassy-related visit. Many Londoners have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda.

"He now works as a nurse's aid even though he has a medical degree", he said.

El Salvador President Salvador Sanchez Ceren spoke by phone Friday with Nielsen to renew his plea to extend status for 190,000 Salvadorans and allow more time for Congress to deliver a long-term fix for them to stay in the U.S. There is widespread sympathy in both parties for the 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to this country as children and to whom President Barack Obama extended protection known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. If former TPS recipients decide to risk arrest and remain in the US, they will continue to work, but in more (and worse) jobs, which will disadvantage both them and USA -born workers.

"They just want to keep giving to this place", he said.

Advocates with MIRA are urging the MA delegation to support and pass legislation in Congress to enable TPS holders to apply for permanent residency. Catherine Cortez Masto said in a news release. The group is encouraging residents to and seek legal advice.

Under the decision, Salvadorans will be given until September 9, 2019, to leave the country or face deportation, according to The Associated Press.

TPS protects more than 300,000 people from 10 countries; more than half are from El Salvador.
