Is Trump Really About To Deport 200,000 Salvadorans? Not Quite
Progressives are predictably hysterical over the Trump administration's decision to end an immigration program benefitting Salvadorans, but of course the reality is a bit complex. Let's unpack what's really going on here.

 Last week, the Trump administration announced that they would not renew “Temporary Protected Status” (TPS) for nearly 200,000 Salvadorans residing in America, meaning that those individuals would need to leave the country by 2019, or face deportation. The administration had already decided in December not to renew TPS for about 60,000 Haitians and Nicaraguans, and may soon announce an end to TPS for 57,000 Hondurans.

All in all, this could remove legal permission to live and work in the United States for more than 300,000 people. The reaction from progressives has been predictably histrionic. However, the reality of this policy decision is complex. Let’s unpack it piece by piece.

TPS Is Not Meant to Be ‘Permanent Legal Status’

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
