In a concession described as rare and contradictory, the Trump administration announced Monday that it had agreed to extend work permits for more than 200,000 citizens of El Salvador who’ve been living in the U.S. ― many for almost two decades ― under a program called Temporary Protected Status, or TPS.

It’s a significant policy reversal for President Donald Trump, who’s long pushed for the deportation of Salvadorans under TPS.

The article goes on to state the following:

About 265,000 Salvadorans in the U.S. have TPS, a designation historically granted to immigrants whose home countries have been deemed too dangerous for them to return to because of armed conflict, natural disaster or other “extraordinary” circumstances.

The report notes that the Bush administration first granted protected status to Salvadorians in 2001, after a pair of devastating earthquakes hit their country.

The Trump administration announced last year it would end the program, but lawsuits have prevented that, and last year a federal judge ordered the extension of TPS to Salvadorians until January 2020.

The Huffington Post further reported, “On Monday, DHS said it had agreed to extend the validity of work permits for Salvadorans with TPS through Jan. 4, 2021. TPS beneficiaries would also be provided “an additional 365 days after the conclusion of the TPS-related lawsuits to repatriate back to their home country,” the agency said.”

In a Twitter post Monday evening, the Trump administration clarified, “To be clear, this is not a TPS extension. It’s an extension of the wind-down period during which work permits for Salvadoran nationals with TPS will be valid while they prepare to return to their home country.”
