Trump administration ending Temporary Legal Status for Salvadorans

Trump administration ending protections for more than 200,000 Salvadorans in U.S., but giving time for a transition

About 262,000 Salvadorans living in the U.S. will lose the temporary legal status that many have enjoyed for almost two decades, the Trump administration announced on Monday.
The Department of Homeland Security's decision, which has been widely anticipated with deep anxiety in Salvadoran communities, said immigrants covered by "temporary protected status" will have until Sept. 9, 2019, to arrange a return or, in some cases, to apply for alternative legal means of staying in the U.S. The population covered by the temporary status includes nearly 30,000 people in the Los Angeles region.
Administration officials said conditions in El Salvador have improved markedly since 2001, when the Bush administration first made the special protections available in the wake of two earthquakes that devastated the small Central American country.
"Schools and hospitals damaged by the earthquakes have been reconstructed and repaired, homes have been rebuilt, and money has been provided for water and sanitation and to repair earthquake-damaged roads and other infrastructure. The substantial disruption of living conditions caused by the earthquake no longer exist," Homeland Security officials said in a statement.

ICE To Send 1,600 Immigration Violators To Federal Prisons

The Trump Administration Has Started Moving Up To 1,600 Immigration Violators Awaiting Deportation Hearings Into Federal Prisons, A First-Of-Its-Kind Transfer That Shows How Many More Immigrants Are Being Rounded Up Under The President's Push To Crack Down On Illegal Immigration.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official said Thursday that the agency entered into an agreement with the U.S. Marshals Service and the Bureau of Prisons to make the beds available for people caught illegally crossing the border.
