WASHINGTON, DC — January 8, 2018 — Congressman Eliot L. Engel today made the following statement on the Trump Administration’s decision to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the 200,000 Salvadorans living in the United States:

“I strongly condemn this cruel and shortsighted decision. Since 2015, Congress has worked in a bipartisan way to help countries in Central America get at the root causes of child migration. In addition to the basic inhumanity of this decision, it’s extraordinarily counterproductive for the President to deport families to El Salvador at a time when Congress is providing resources in the Northern Triangle to discourage children from making the dangerous trek from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border. Rather than follow the lead of Republican and Democratic Presidents alike in extending TPS, the President has chosen to tear families apart.”

    To say “I am here illegally and I dont care about what the law says and I am just going to be here and I demand to be rewarded for it ; does not cut it Mr. Engel.

  2. History Please

    You weren’t condemning the cruel and shortsighted decisions of the US since WWII when they were supporting every dictator and junta who slaughtered their own people, with the help of the CIA.

    Learn some history before you open your beak. Can I suggest you read the John Perkins books on the subject.

    It’s time for term limits to get rid of these bottom feeders.
