Temporary Protected Status Extended for El Salvadorans

Written By The Shapiro Law Group on January 26, 2012

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently announced that it is extending the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) of El Salvador nationals who already have TPS in the U.S.

This will allow qualifying individuals to remain in the U.S. and work here lawfully until DHS has determined that El Salvador is a safe enough and stable enough place to which they can return.

Qualifying individuals can reapply for TPS and work authorizations that will be valid until as late as Sept. 9, 2013. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will issue updated authorization documents for those who timely re-register, and this will extend forthcoming expiration dates for at least another six months. The re-registration period runs until March 12, 2012.
