Immigrants will have until September 2019 to leave the country or find other means of lawful residency, according to multiple news reports.
In a letter to Congress members, Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said conditions in El Salvador had improved significantly since 2001, rendering the original justification for the protected status void.
Congress now has 18 months to pass legislation protecting Salvadoran immigrants or their legal status will be revoked, according to a letter first seen by The Washington Post.
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) occasionally grants protected status to immigrants from countries where conditions “prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely”, or where the country is “unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately”. The designation must be renewed in six, 12 or 18-month periods.
Every president since George W Bush has extended the protected status of Salvadorans, allowing many to create permanent lives within the US. More than half of all Salvadoran immigrants have lived in the US for 20 years or more, according to the Centre for Migration Studies. 10 per cent are married to a legal resident.
