200,000 Salvadoran refugees will no longer receive temporary deportation protection.
Seeing as it has been YEARS the temporary affiliation has certainly run its course. President Obama allowed these non citizens to remain in America mooching off the system for far too long and President Trump has decided enough is enough. America needs to start focusing on AMERICA! End of story.
How many years should foreigners who have been given “temporary” protection from deportation, be allowed to live in the United States of America? How many years should Americans be forced to pay for the education, healthcare and social service costs associated with almost a quarter of a million people who were given temporary residence in the U.S. following a massive earthquake? How many of these 200,00 people applied for citizenship?
The Trump administration said Monday it is ending special protections for Salvadoran immigrants, an action that could force nearly 200,000 to leave the U.S. by September 2019 or face deportation.
In September 2016, the Obama administration extended protections for 18 months, saying El Salvador suffered lingering harm from the 2001 earthquakes that killed more than 1,000 people and was temporarily unable to absorb such a large number of returning people.
El Salvador is the fourth country whose citizens have lost Temporary Protected Status under President Donald Trump. Salvadorans have been, by far, the largest beneficiaries of the program, which provides humanitarian relief for foreigners whose countries are hit with natural disasters or other strife.
For too long the country has descended into poverty thanks to the free handouts that were not financially feasible to begin with yet were approved by Obama nonetheless. How can America help other countries if it can’t even help its self?
