The Trump administration announced it would be ending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the nearly 200,000 people from El Salvador who have been allowed to live and work legally in the United States since 2001. Many believe kicking these migrants out of the country they have known for more than a decade is inhumane and unnecessary. But others argue TPS meant their status was always temporary, and the Trump administration is under no obligation to grant amnesty. What do you think?

The Trump administration will be ending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the nearly 200,000 people from El Salvador who have been allowed to live and work legally in the United States since 2001. 

Homeland security officials said that they were ending a humanitarian program, known as Temporary Protected Status, for Salvadorans who have been allowed to live and work legally in the United States since a pair of devastating earthquakes struck their country in 2001.
It provides temporary lawful status and work authorization to people already in the United States, whether they entered legally or not, from countries affected by armed conflict, natural disaster or other strife. 

Many view the decision as inhumane and unnecessary. They seeing forcing out hundreds of thousands of migrants who have built their lives in the U.S. for the past 17 years—many of whom have children who are now U.S. citizens—as wrong. The decision will mean breaking up families and will force law-abiding migrants back to a country still riddled with conflict.

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris called the decision "callous" and "not smart."

Sen. Tom Carper echoed this sentiment, adding the U.S. has a "moral obligation to care for our neighbors."

But others argue TPS meant their migrant status was always temporary, and President Trump is under no obligation to grant amnesty to the Salvadorans still living in the country. 

Neil Munro of Breitbart also argues the 200,000 Salvadorans will boost El Salvador's economy "with savings and skills earned in the United States" and the decisions will "free up jobs for American citizens."

The TPS decision... underlines Trump’s determination to enforce the nation’s immigration laws, and to push his “Buy American, Hire American” inauguration-day promise, despite growing pressure from the GOP’s business-first wing, Democrats and their allies in the establishment media.
Many of the El Salvador migrants were living illegally in the United States when the earthquake hit their home country in 2001. Since then, the “Temporary Protected Status” has been 11 times by Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

The Trump administration is doing nothing wrong by telling migrants their temporary status has come to an end.
