More Winning: TPS Ends for Salvadorans

The Temporary Protective Status is finally falling away. This country will no longer serve as the never-ending battered women's shelter of the world.

That's the way it should be. The United States simply cannot take up every hard-luck case in the world. There is only so much food, water, space, resources, plus the diminishing respect for the rule of law and the Judeo-Christian culture which defines this blessed, beautiful country.

TPS was revoked for Haitians fleeing their island nation in 2010. Plenty of time has passed, and those refugees have received enough support and pause to return to their countries.

The same is true for the Guatemalans, the Nicaraguans, and now the Salvadorans.

The earthquake which drove them to the United States took place in 2001. It's been 17 years. If those individuals have not become citizens by now, then they had no interest in becoming citizens ever. Enough is enough.

U.S. moves toward expelling 200,000 Salvadorans

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Some 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants allowed to live and work in the United States since 2001 will lose their right to remain in the country in 2019, officials said on Monday, marking the Trump administration’s latest move to tighten immigration enforcement.

18 months is plenty of time to get legal or go home. They already had 17 years!

The United States will end the Salvadorans’ temporary protected status (TPS) on Sept. 9, 2019, giving them 18 months to leave or seek lawful residency, and for El Salvador to prepare for their return, officials said. The status was granted in the wake of two devastating 2001 earthquakes in El Salvador that left hundreds of thousands in the country homeless.

These are tragic circumstances, but this country has not said "No" to these never-ending demands from the rest of the world. It's time for other countries in Latin America and

The decision to end TPS for Salvadorans is part of the administration’s broader push to tighten immigration laws and expel those living in the United States illegally. The move was heavily criticized by immigrant advocates who said it ignored violence in El Salvador and gave the Salvadorans few options but to leave the United States or remain illegally.

Who cares what immigrant or immigration advocates have to say! If they feel that strongly about the issue, then they should take those families into their homes and pay for them in full. There is no way that the evils ravaging Central and South America will end as long as the citizenry of these countries flee to the United States as their one recourse.

It's time for Central and South Americans to fight and make their home countries great again. They can and they will do this.

And we Americans will do the same for our country.
