Temporary protected status (also called “TPS”) is a temporary immigration status to the United States, granted to eligible nationals of the following countries including
• El Salvador,
• Somalia and South Sudan
The Department of Homeland Security announced Monday it is ending “temporary protected status” for immigrants from El Salvador.
Congress created Temporary Protected Status in 1990 as a form of humanitarian relief for people who would face extreme hardship if forced to return to homelands devastated by armed conflict and natural disasters.
Temporary protected status (also called “TPS”) is a temporary immigration status to the United States, granted to eligible nationals of designated countries including El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Nepal, Syria, Nicaragua, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and South Sudan
Salvadorans are just the latest group whose TPS designation is on the chopping block.
Last month, it was announced that in July 2019 TPS will end for more than 50,000 Haitians who sought refuge in the United States after a catastrophic earthquake hit that country in 2010.
