    Trump extends protected status for 263,000 Salvadorans in U.S. by a year

    U.S. extends protected status for Salvadorans in U.S. by a year

    By Nelson Renteria
    ,ReutersOctober 28, 2019

    SAN SALVADOR (Reuters) - The U.S. government has extended temporary protection for Salvadorans living in the United States by an additional year, the U.S. ambassador to El Salvador, Ronald Johnson, said on Monday, in a potential sign of easing tensions over migration.

    "Today in Washington, we signed an agreement which extends the TPS (temporary protected status) for the Salvadorans in the United States for another year," Johnson said in a joint video statement with Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele.


    TPS was granted to citizens of the Central American country following two devastating 2001 earthquakes in El Salvador that left hundreds of thousands of people homeless.


    However, U.S. President Donald Trump has shown considerable skepticism toward the protection scheme and has moved to revoke the special status afforded to thousands of immigrants from a number of countries including El Salvador.


    The program offers protection from deportation to immigrants who already are in the United States, including those who entered illegally, from countries affected by natural disasters, civil conflicts and other problems.


    El Salvador, along with Guatemala and Honduras, are the homelands of the bulk of migrants caught trying to cross into the United States illegally via Mexico.


    Bukele on Sep. 26 said the United States should promote legal migration as part of its crackdown on illegal immigration, and called on Trump to continue TPS.


    As of October 2018, there were over 263,000 TPS beneficiaries from El Salvador, court documents show.

    This is probably the result of one of those "special deals" Trump has boasted about to stop the caravans. Unfortunately, the devil is always in the details. A sweet deal for El Salvador at our expense! Sometimes Trump's deals aren't exactly what they appear to be.

    Trump officials reach deal to extend work permits for El Salvador immigrants

    The Trump administration has reached an agreement with El Salvador to extend work permits for 250,000 Salvadoran immigrants under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program for an additional year while a broader fight over the program plays out in court.

    Under the agreement announced Monday, work permits would be extended for Salvadorans who could be taken off TPS through January 2021, according to both the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the U.S. Embassy in El Salvador.


    Acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Ken Cuccinelli stressed in a tweet Monday that while work permits would be extended for a year amid ongoing litigation, it was not an extension of the TPS program itself.


    TPS is a status given to people who come to the U.S. from countries that face turmoil such as war or natural disasters.


    "Some reporting has spoken of 'extending TPS.' That has important legal meaning, and that's not what happened w/ the agreements. Rather, work permits for Salvadorans will be extended for 1 year past resolution of litigation for an orderly wind down period," the USICS head tweeted.


    The announcement came amid several agreements unveiled by the Trump administration in recent weeks to receive buy-in from Central American countries in stemming the flow of migrants heading toward the U.S.


    A judge last year halted the administration's move to end TPS for countries including El Salvador, with the government saying it would abide by an injunction extending the program until January 2020 while appealing the ruling in federal court.


    Cuccinelli pushed back on Monday after U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador Ronald Johnson said in a tweet that the deal announced this week "extends TPS for Salvadorans in the US by one additional year."


    A USCIS official reiterated to The Hill in an email Tuesday that "this is not a TPS extension."


    "It’s an extension of the wind-down period during which work permits for Salvadoran nationals with TPS will be valid while they prepare to return to their home country,” the official said.


    The State Department declined to comment, instead referring The Hill to DHS.


    The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is expected to issue a ruling related to the administration's push to end TPS soon.


    The agreement on the work permits is the latest as the administration seeks to curb both legally and illegal immigration, particularly from Central America.


    The U.S. previously reached an asylum agreement with El Salvador last month.
