Honduras joins El Salvador in obtaining protected status extension in U.S

Honduras joins El Salvador in obtaining protected status extension in U.SThe U.S. government has extended temporary protection for Hondurans living in the United States by a year, Honduran officials said on Friday, following a similar extension for Salvadorans in a rollback of U.S. plans to end the program. U.S. President Donald Trump last year said he would shut down temporary protected status (TPS) for Hondurans and Salvadorans after a January 2020 expiration, amid a slew of measures meant to crack down on growing numbers of migrants from Central America. “On our part, we will keep working to find a permanent and humane solution for our Honduran brothers,” Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said in a Tweet on Friday, adding that TPS covers more than 40,000 Hondurans.
