200,000+ Salvadorans Face Deportation

Jan 24, 2018

In 2001, a series of earthquakes devastated El Salvador. 17 years later, the Trump Administration is ending the Temporary Protected Status that allows 200,000 Salvadorans to work and live legally in the United States. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh spoke with Jacob Blickenov, national organizer for the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador to learn more. Salvadorans with TPS must re-register between now and March 19 to remain in the United States until September of 2019. Otherwise, deportations begin as early as September of this year.
