On Monday, the Trump administration announced that it was stripping approximately 260,500 Salvadoran immigrants — who’ve been in the US for at least 17 years, since a 2001 earthquake — of temporary legal status as of July 2019.
It’s the latest, and most significant, blow in the administration’s fight against Temporary Protected Status, an immigration program that lets the government allow immigrants to stay in the US and work legally after their home countries are struck by natural disasters or war.
#ACTION: CALL YOUR MOCs!
"I am contacting Senator/Congressperson ______ because I am outraged by the Trump Administration's cruel decision to end Temporary Protected Status for the over 200,000 Salvadorean immigrants who have been living and working in the US for nearly two decades. This is yet another heartless, racist attack on hardworking immigrants and their families, and I ask Senator/Congressperson __________ to take a stand and say NO."
