Salvadorans are Facing the Heat of Trump Administration; Set Timeline for 200,000 to leave

The long-awaited conclusion has arrived painfully, and nearly 200,000 Salvadorans are asked to make a bid adieu to the United States soil. The Federal government has announced a deadline for 200,000 Salvadoran individuals, many of whom are from some established families in the United States as well as children born in the country.

The announcement came on Jan. 8, 2018 as Kirstjen Nielsen, the Secretary of the Homeland Security, declared that the temporary protected status granted to those people are ceased by the order. Interestingly, they were welcomed to the United States in 2001 after two major earthquakes shattered the Central American Country.

Per the latest information, the affected people get 18 months to leave the country or else will be deported. The officials have confirmed that the timeline is giving enough space for a legislative solution if the Congress wants to make them stay in the United States.

Similarly, the Trump Administration had stripped the TPS or temporary protection status of nearly 60,000 Haitians and over 5,000 Nicaraguans by the end of 2017. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427427/Jim_Larkin

Opposing the stand of the Trump Administration, the Democrats are fighting the moves to send back nearly 700,000 young immigrants who are generally addressed as “Dreamers,” who arrived as children to the country.

President Donald Trump opened his mind that he is ready to allow the dreamers back in the country only if the Congress is agreed to make the infamous anti-immigrant wall in between the country and Mexico, which is costing nearly $18 billion.

Most of the affected people found to be shattered by the announcement as they are integrated into the American cosmopolitan culture over the decades.

Especially for the youngsters, their native country is none other than the United States, and the return for them is unimaginable. Due to that reason, a large majority of these migrant rights issues are also becoming significant human and civil rights issues as well.

Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund is a significant step in the state of Arizona against such violations.

It was designed in the minds of two news reporters from the state, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. Both got compensation of nearly $3.7 million in 2013 as they were illegally arrested by the Sherriff of Maricopa County.

Instead of spending the amount personally, the editors decided to help the struggling migrants in the state of Arizona and created the Frontera Fund. It is supporting various migrant and human rights groups in the state by putting a special focus on freedom of speech.
