TPS Discontinued for 200,000 from El Salvador

The Department t of Homeland Security (DHS) has ordered El Salvadoran’s granted Temporary Protective Status and work authorization to depart the U.S. before September of 2019 or face deportation. It is unclear if work permits that are to expire in 2018 can be renewed at this point but our immigration lawyers are carefully monitoring USCIS policy for any updates. There are approximately an equal number of U.S citizen children of TPS holders, 200,000 who would either leave the U.S. or be left behind while their parents are deported or forced to leave the U.S.
Many TPS holders have U.S. citizen spouses who could adjust their status to permanent residence prior to this occurring. Our immigration attorneys have filed applications for several clients who have valid TPS and are filing for permanent residence, or green cards, through U.S. citizen spouses. Otherwise, those with TPS who cannot adjust status will face being placed in immigration court or removal proceedings.
