    El Salvadoran's gets extension on protected status

    U.S. Extends Benefit for Salvadoran Immigrants


    WASHINGTON – The Temporary Protected Status first granted nine years ago to Salvadoran immigrants has been extended for 18 months, to March 9, 2012, the office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced Friday.

    TPS, which entitles beneficiaries to a work permit, can be conferred on immigrants from countries devastated by natural disasters or armed conflict.

    Salvadoran migrants received the favored status in 2001, after their country experienced two powerful earthquakes within the space of a month.

    The decision to extend TPS for 217,000 Salvadorans was greeted with joy by the Central American nation’s ambassador in Washington, Francisco Altschul.

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano concluded that the conditions which first prompted the grant of TPS to migrants of El Salvador persist, USCIS said, while noting that the benefit is not available to Salvadorans who entered the United States after Feb. 13, 2001, the date of the second of the twin earthquakes.

    The USCIS announcement “brings peace and tranquility to Salvadoran families, since they will be able to continue working and contributing so much to the economy of the U.S. and to that of El Salvador,

    What a complete scam. Conditions caused by an earthquake 9 years ago still persist? Janet Napolitano is a damn liar.

    The last time it came up for renewal Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart told me that the United States is unlikely to stop rolling over the Salvadorean TPS as long as the country is a military ally. It appears that El Salvador is still supplying auxiliaries to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    I support enforcement and see its lack as bad for the 3rd World as well. Remittances are now mostly spent on consumption not production assets. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)

    You have got to wonder why all the bias to El Salvador and Haiti. Has the US Government offered anything to Chili? Not even a mention of the disaster there where an estimate 67,000 are still out of work. Napolitano is a damn liar. I guess its better to roll out the red carpet for criminals, illiterates and the unskilled.

    Its amazing how this went un noticed by our MSM and not even an announcement by our federal government.
