The US and El Salvador struck a deal to protect Salvadorans with TPS.


About 265,000 Salvadorans in the U.S. have Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which gives them temporary legal status and the ability to work. Most of them have been in the U.S. for more than 10 years, since Salvadorans were first offered TPS during the Bush administration. In the past few years, the Trump administration has attempted to end TPS for Salvadorans, and is currently litigating the end of TPS. The deal struck on Monday pushes the end date for Salvadoran TPS to January 2, 2021, even if the courts rule in the government’s favor and allow TPS to end.
