The Trump administration announced today that it will extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 200,000 Salvadorans. Their permits were scheduled to run out on January 2, 2020. The U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador made a joint announcement of the extension with Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele. Details on the renewal process have not been released. We will post them on Long Island Wins as soon as they become available.

The acting director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Ken Cuccinelli said that the extension of work permits was designed to allow Salvadorans to arrange for departure from the United States when litigation over the termination of TPS is concluded.
