Trump administration ends protected status of 200,000 Salvadorans in U.S.- Sept 2019 deadline

Trump administration ends protected status of 200,000 Salvadorans in U.S.
[www.nydailynews.com]
The Trump administration will not extend the Temporary Protected Status program, which has allowed nearly 200,000 Salvadorans to stay in the U.S. legally, according to a report Monday. The Department of Homeland Security has decided to not renew the program, which provides humanitarian relief for foreigners whose countries are hit with natural disasters or serious conflict. Last year, the administration ended those protections for citizens of Haiti and Nicaragua.

Salvadorans, whose country was struck by a pair of major earthquakes, will have until September 2019 to leave or obtain other legal options to stay in the United States, according to the Washington Post.

Immigration advocates say that ending the protections will cause major issues for El Salvador, a country of 6.2 million people. The economy is in part based on people working in the United States and other countries sending money back to family and loved ones. In September 2016, the Obama administration extended protections for 18 months, saying El Salvador suffered lingering harm from the 2001 earthquakes that killed more than 1,000 people and would be unable to absorb such a large wave of people returning.

...and in a few months it will be the Hondurans.

To be honest, i'm of two minds on this issue. First it was suppose to be temporary, which means the government should have ended it years ago. However, I also feel that the government forfeited that ability by extending it for so long. Now we are going to create more ill-will in the world community because of our nations own ineptitude.

Our government allowed, even encouraged these people to build new lives, and allowed them to establish themselves here. Many now have minor children who are citizens - those children can return whenever they want. However they often will not have the job skills to advance because they are now going to be educated in a dysfunctional school system.

We are doing great harm to El Salvador's economy - and that is a country that has generally be considered an ally. It will also harm our economy. You can not remove that many people without upended the housing and job market's in selected areas. Business' owned by these individuals will be closed, and employees terminated. Other companies will lose skilled workers, that cannot always be easily replaced.

If this situation had been dealt with after five years then all would have been well. But to wait 20 years and then take action - that is just wrong.

Hey, just us white folk are going to be left! Trump should be happy then but he will probably try to deport people without orange hair.

How many of those Salvadorans are NOT picking fruit and nailing shingles, but are actually in skilled positions?

Low unemployment strains industries like manufacturing

Published 7:01 AM ET Fri, 5 Jan 2018 Updated 10:10 AM ET Fri, 5 Jan 2018 CNBC.com

An average of 174,000 jobs were added per month in 2017, a drop of 12,000 from the average of 186,000 jobs added per month in the last year of Obama's presidency.
With unemployment at 4.1 percent, the tight labor market makes finding skilled workers tougher in manufacturing and other industries.
Economists credit Trump's push for deregulation and a recent victory in overhauling the tax code, which have sent business confidence soaring.


That's also 200,000 people purchasing local goods and services.

Listening to NPR, one big reason that previous administrations had extended the stay was due to unsafe conditions in El Salvador due to the drug trade and gang violence. Both Bush and Obama administrations included gang violence as a natural disaster.

No - Temporary Protective Status is intended for people fleeing instability and danger, whether natural or man-made. There's no need to 'include' gang violence as a 'natural disaster' - it qualifies as a human-caused disaster.

Not according to DHS, they are defining it in narrow legal terms referring specifically to the earthquake:

On Monday, however, DHS officials resisted suggestions that the decision by Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was part of a broader anti-immigrant agenda. They described it in narrower legal terms, as a recognition that conditions in El Salvador have improved enough since the earthquakes to no longer warrant the TPS designation.

In this particular case, the current administration has instructed DHS to re-interpret the TPS order to exclude non-earthquake-related conditions. That doesn't mean that they can't, or shouldn't, be considered.

Oh, I completely agree.
