The Trump Administration is ending temporary protected status (TPS) for about 200,000 Salvadorans who have been allowed to work and live in the United States since 2001. Many of those immigrants fled to escape violence during the 1980s and 90s, and were granted TPS in 2001 after a pair of devastating earthquakes struck El Salvador. The protected status will end in September of next year. Forum discusses the impact on the Salvadoran community in the Bay Area.
