DHS extends TPS for Salvadorans

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months for eligible persons from El Salvador who are present in the United States.  Persons from El Salvador who are currently in TPS status must re-register with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on or before March 12, 2012.

TPS re-registrants are eligible to apply for a new Employment Authorization Document (EAD), which will be valid until September 9, 2013.

If you have any questions about TPS or the procedures required to re-register, please contact a qualified immigration attorney.
