US To Require Salvadorans To Leave In 2019

According to the Department of Homeland Security, countries that receive Temporary Protection Status (TPS) are defined as having "ongoing armed conflict (such as civil war), an environmental disaster (such as quake or hurricane), or an epidemic, [and] other extraordinary and temporary conditions".

She says the 18-month delay gives Congress time to address the issue.

About 200,000 Salvadorans who have been in the US since at least 2001 will become eligible to be deported next year, the Trump administration announced Monday.

Salvadorans will have until September 9 2019 to leave the United States or adjust their legal status.

The Trump administration has indicated for months that it believes the "temporary" in "temporary protected status" has been wrongly overlooked for too long. Of those Salvadorans, analysts say some 200,000 could face ouster without renewed TPS. Previous estimates by the department have put the number who will most likely be left without other protections around 200,000.

DHS has made an effort to emphasize that TPS depends on the original reason for the designation, not current conditions.

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on Monday that damage inflicted by a 2001 natural disaster in the Central American country didn't justify another temporary extension.

U.S. searches of int'l travelers' electronic devices soar in 2017
However, this policy still falls far short of what the Constitution requires - a search warrant based on probable cause. However, the agency stressed that only around 0.007 per cent of incoming worldwide travellers had their devices checked.

Advocates for continuing TPS for El Salvador and other countries in Central America have argued that violence and political unrest make it unsafe for migrants to return.

Critics immediately slammed the decision.

That means almost 1 million people now allowed to live and work in the USA will soon be at risk of deportation unless they can find another way to gain legal status.

"The end of TPS for El Salvador is a devastating betrayal for thousands of families who arrived at the United States seeking safety as well as their USA citizen children". "It's inhumane and not consistent with American values".

In ending the protections for other groups, the Homeland Security Department has urged outraged lawmakers to enact legislation rather than continue to force the secretary to make the decisions.

She explained that El Salvador has received significant worldwide aid and that much of the country's infrastructure is rebuilt. "Since 2001, these people have established themselves in the United States, making countless contributions to our society and our local communities".

"We can deal with diversity visa, if we pair it with TPS, doing some kind of reallocation visas there", Flake told reporters on Friday.
