The following fact is used by immigration activists to oppose Salvadorans being forced to return to their homeland.
El Salvador’s homicide rate — 108 per 100,000 people in 2015 — was the world’s highest for a country not at war, the most recent U.N. data shows.But that fact can be used to oppose Salvadorans being allowed to migrate to the US given the most notable immigrants from that country are members of violent criminal syndicate MS13.
The Trump administration announpred Monday that it will terminate the provisional residency permits of about 200,000 Salvadorans who have lived in the country since at least 2001, leaving them to face deportation.
The administration said it will give the Salvadorans until Sept. 9, 2019, to leave the United States or find a way to obtain a green card, according to a statement from the Department of Homeland Security. After earthquakes hit the country in 2001, Salvadorans were granted what is known aso-i Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, and their permits have been renewed on an 18-month basis since then.
