Stop the Deportations

On Monday, January 8, President Trump's Administration announced they would start the deportation process for over 200,000 Salvadoreans who have temporary protected (TPS) status in the United States after the 2001 earthquakes.

The decision will fragment American families, leaving over 192,000 U.S. citizen children of Salvadoran TPS recipients with uncertain futures. Families will be needlessly separated because of this decision.

God calls us to care for the foreigner and the marginalized: We cannot as a nation must not turn its back on TPS recipients and their families; they too are children of God.

As people of faith, we call on the President and Congress to work in a bipartisan manner to find a legislative solution for long-term TPS recipients, and we stand ready to support such efforts.

  • Sister JT Dwyer – the Country of El Salvador is a country of great violence against its own people. I believe we should be extending TPS for Salvadoreans, not ending it. Although the ravages of the hurricane have been repaired, other issues have arisen that warrant not ending TPS for these people.
