This Nation's Migrants Sent Home Record $5 Billion Remittances From US

In elementary school, her daughter is already thinking about what it will be like to live in a place like El Salvador with high poverty and high rates of crime. "In Bowling Green there are Salvadorans who have fought for us in the Iraq War, mortgaged homes to start little factories, and have nearly ideal 4 point averages in college". She said she doesn't want to see families destroyed or divided.

Our task now is to make this case in every corner of this country. The local Culinary Union is also working with the immigration clinic as well as the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada to coordinate events in the community and inform immigrants. "Today, in one of her first acts as the new head of the Department of Homeland Security, Secretary Nielsen has told 200,000 of our friends, neighbors and colleagues - people who sought safety in the United States and have had full permission to build lives here for almost 17 years - that they have 18 months to pack their bags and return to El Salvador, a country that is plagued by the highest homicide rate in Latin America, a 95 percent impunity rate and escalating human-rights abuses".

Painters President Kenneth Rigmaiden, who put together a coalition of five unions, plus the AFL-CIO, in the $1 million Working Families United campaign to protect the TPS card-holders, said his union started its own education campaign on January 8 among members on the Dreamers, TPS card-holders, the wage theft both groups suffer, and how to protect themselves. She leaves their Chelsea home for work as he arrives and makes sure there's food waiting. They are not eligible for most public benefits, including Medicaid. Catherine Cortez Masto said in a news release.

The Trump Administration is also targeting young, undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers, who were brought to the United States as children.

"Trump's reprehensible comments about Haiti have surely shined a light on the discussion about TPS, and I hope that this will force my GOP colleagues to consider the plight of these worthy families who contribute to our nation", Ros-Lehtinen said in a statement.

El Salvador President Salvador Sanchez Ceren spoke by phone Friday with Nielsen to renew his plea to extend status for 190,000 Salvadorans and allow more time for Congress to deliver a long-term fix for them to stay in the U.S. Salvadorans with TPS status now have until September 2019 to obtain legal residency or leave the U.S.

There's a lot of fear out there. They've heard a very clear articulation of things that could happen that would fundamentally alter their lives, and for the worse.

"We knew we weren't going to get mercy from this administration, and we've been preparing, but it still hurts", Vanessa said. Our policies are clear.

The benefit, which includes work authorization, can be renewed up to 18 months at a time by the Homeland Security secretary.

Abbott says, "We're talking about several hundred thousand USA citizen children that will be impacted by this decision". We will not take breadwinners away from families who have no one else. On Long island, New York, the population of the towns of Brentwood, Hempstead, Uniondale, New Cassel, North Bay Shore, and Roosevelt are over 20% Salvadoran. The United States has been fueling chaos in El Salvador long before the recent exodus: Washington notoriously supported the country's civil war during the 1980s and early 1990s, as the right-wing military regime terrorized the country with massacres and mass human rights violations. It is home to over 30,000.
