200,000 Salvadorans to Be Forced to Leave U.S.

Following to a new ruling by the Department of Homeland Security, some 200,000 Salvadorans will be forced to leave the U.S. or face deportation, The Washington Post reports. The bureau will announce the decision later Monday. According to the report, DHS has opted against renewing the Temporary Protected Status designation that’s been in place since 2001, when El Salvador was struck by devastating earthquakes. Those under the protected status have until September 2019 to leave the U.S. or otherwise seek legal residency.
