via Trump admin to end protected status for 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants – AOL News

WASHINGTON, Jan 8 (Reuters) – The Trump administration will announce on Monday it plans to end the Temporary Protected Status that has allowed 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants to remain in the United States, a U.S. Senate aide said.

Under the plan, the legal status will be extended until Sept. 9, 2019, the aide told Reuters. Salvadorans in the United States under the TPS program will have until that date to leave or obtain other lawful residency.

The Trump administration has faced a series of deadlines over the past year to decide whether to end the protections for immigrants in the United States whose home countries have been affected by disasters. Administration officials have said TPS is supposed to provide a temporary haven for victims, not a permanent status in the United States.
