Canada telling Salvadorans facing US exit that haven isn't guaranteed

Letter: Congress must act to protect immigrant families

That decision can take years. This week, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced those protections will end in September 2019, and in the meantime, Salvadorans in the U.S. will have to re-register for TPS.

Salvadorans were the largest group of immigrants under TPS, but the program has also allowed immigrants from countries like Honduras, Haiti and Nicaragua fleeing from natural disasters or war to come to the U.S. The Trump administration previously announced plans past year to end the protections for Nicaraguans and Haitians as well. He also assured that "only 8% of the asylum applications made by Haitians in Canada previous year were accepted", while the great majority remaining are still waiting for a hearing.

We don't blame anyone who would prefer to live in this country rather than the places they left. Her U.S. -born 11-year-old daughter wrote a handwritten letter to lawmakers earlier this year pleading with them to protect TPS for the sake of her parents.

Advocates of the program say long-term resident Salvadorans and their children should not be sent back to El Salvador, a country struggling with a weak economy and gang violence that has given it one of the world's highest murder rates. "The losers include the TPS recipients themselves, their employers, their USA citizen children, their US communities, El Salvador, and the USA economy". "There is now a travel advisory from the government, warning Americans not to travel to El Salvador".

After 75 minutes with Norway's prime minister, Donald Trump goes green
After the US withdrew from the Paris climate agreement, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg made clear her disagreement . President Donald Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting at the White House, Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, in Washington.

"We are not being complacent", he said.

Saenz said referencing the 2001 natural disaster without considering any other unsafe condition not in relation to the quake is "life-threateningly risky".

There are approximately 1.35 million Salvadorans of any status living in the United States, according to U.S. Census Bureau data analyzed by the Migration Policy Institute, a non-partisan think-tank. They're more often professionals. "We would have to keep her inside to keep her hidden and safe".

Recalling the words of Pope Francis, Corbett said building walls, detaining human beings and "deporting our Salvadoran sisters and brothers is just another example of how the Trump administration is stirring up "primal fears" for political advantage". In her statement regarding the decision to terminate TPS for Salvadorans, Nielsen asserts that the conditions which led to the initial program in 2001 no longer exist, and that the government is "required" to end the program.

So, if I've done something wrong, I will fix it. "I don't want to shut them down in anyway". It "was like a slap in my face", she told the paper.

"The White House is peddling a fantasy where hundreds of thousands of people who have established their lives, families, and businesses in the USA for decades will leave or can be rounded up and deported".

Numerous people under the temporary status have tried to become permanent residents by applying for green cards. "Because if you don't fill these criteria, chances are you'll be returned, not to the US but to your native country".

While urging Congress to find a solution, Bishop Vasquez said the USCCB stands in solidarity with Salvadoran TPS recipients and that the bishops would continue to pray for them, their families, "and all those who are displaced or forced to flee from their homes". They're seeking those routes because of an immigration agreement between Canada and the USA that precludes people from filing asylum claims at legal border entry points. Oliva is terrified about the possibility of bring her children to Salvador where they would go to schools infested by gang turf wars. Haitians and Nicaraguans lost their protected status in November. Some are scrambling to understand the decision since there is so much misinformation, he said.

Israel searches West Bank after settler killed in drive-by shooting
Israel disputes that its settlements are illegal and says their future should be determined in peace talks with the Palestinians. Shortly afterward, Israel annexed East Jerusalem, claiming it part of its "indivisible capital".

The Ohio-based Ignatian Solidarity Network said returning, for many Salvadorans, means returning to danger. "These women and men of all ages - whom we know as students, teachers, colleagues, parishioners - are faced with a future of uncertainty and grave risk for themselves and their families as they contemplate a return to the violence and impunity in El Salvador".
