The US government of Donald Trump revokes special protection status for about 200,000 immigrants from El Salvador. The conditions for special status granted to people from Central American country after two devastating earthquakes in year 2001 were no longer given, said US Homeland Security Minister Kirstjen Nielsen. The persons concerned were granted a transitional period of 18 months in order to return to ir home country or to seek a new visa.
After earthquakes with more than 3,000 deaths, immigrants from El Salvador, who had already lived in United States at time, had a temporary protected status (TPS). 17 years after accident, re was no reason to prolong program, Homeland Security Department shared. It is now up to Congress to create conditions for a permanent right of residence during transitional period.
If legal situation is not changed, generally well integrated 195,000 Salvadorans in September 2019 threatens to deportation. The decision also concerns about 193,000 children of Salvadoran immigrants who have been born in United States since 2001 and refore have U.S. citizenship.
The Salvadoran Government thanked Government in WASHINGTONZUNÄCHST for fact that protection still remains for 18 months. "We at this time without a stop to work on a permanent Alternativefür our compatriots," said El SalvadorsAußenminister Hugo Martínez. The aim is to get a law by DenUS Congress, which gives Salvadorans a dauerhaftenAufenthaltstitel. For those Salvadorans who want to return to IhrHeimatland, government will set up a reintegration and employment programme, KündigteMartínez. "They will receive with open arms."
But director of US Centre for Migration Studies, Donald Kerwin, doubts that El Salvador is able to give security and work to returnees. Even though earthquake damage has now been eliminated, country is struggling with many problems. Recently, more and more people fled fights antagonistic youth gangs. With around 60 murders per 100,000 inhabitants, El Salvador is one of most dangerous countries in world.
Thus, Government's decision only made losers: "Among losers are previous beneficiaries of protection status," ir employers, ir US-born children, cities and municipalities in United States, El Salvador and US economy, "said Kerwein. He warned against an increase in illegal migration to US, because deported Salvadorans might try to get back to ir families.Haiti, Sudan, El Salvador
US President Trump is pursuing a restrictive immigration policy. Since taking office, United States had already withdrawn almost 59,000 Haitians, more than 5,000 immigrants from Nicaragua and about a thousand Sudanese ir special protection status. DerUS president wants to abolish family reunification for immigrants and demands simpler deportation rules and a Verschärfungdes right of asylum. The Daca program also wants to end Trump. The programme had allowed young migrants who were illegally brought into United States as children to work and stay.
The recent decision by US government was incomprehension among trade union representatives and Democratic deputies. "They have work, supported ir families, owning houses and paying taxes," said John Boardman of union Unite Here, where numerous workers from El Salvador are united.
The US Democrats also condemned possible expulsion to country where many people live in poverty. Trump is abandoning hard-working families and instead putting on "fear and intimidation," said Senator Carine Cortez Masto.
