EL PUEBLO OPPOSES DECISION TO END TPS FOR SALVADORAN NATIONALS

El Pueblo stands in opposition to the decision by the Trump Administration to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Salvadoran nationals.  The choice to end this legal protection for over 200,000 Salvadorans is cruel and puts more community members at risk by removing legal protections and access to safe, healthy working conditions.  With the future of TPS recipients from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and the Sudan, as well as the future of 800,000 DACA recipients, in jeopardy, El Pueblo calls upon Congress to pass legislation that would create a permanent solution for affected communities.  El Pueblo stands in solidarity with refugees from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and the Sudan, as well as all of those whose lives and futures are being put at risk by policy changes that fail to respect the human rights and dignity of immigrants, refugees and people of color.
