On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Salvadorans will be extended. Salvadorans who already have TPS must renew their status by March 12, 2012, or lose their permission to work and stay legally in the United States. An estimated 15,000 Salvadorans on Long Island have TPS.

Salvadorans wishing to renew their Temporary Protected Status should contact Catholic Charities at 631-789-5210 or CARECEN at 516-489-8330 (Hempstead) or 631-273-8721 (Brentwood).
