Re-Registration Period Now Open for
Salvadorans with Temporary Protected
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that
current beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under El Salvador’
s designation who want to maintain their status through the effective
termination date of Sept. 9, 2019, must re-register between Jan. 18, 2018,
and March 19, 2018.
Re-registration procedures, including how to renew employment authorization
documents, have been published in the Federal Register and on
All applicants must submit Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected
Status. Applicants may also request an Employment Authorization Document
(EAD) by submitting a completed Form I-765, Application for Employment
Authorization, at the time of filing Form I-821, or separately at a later date.
Both forms are free for download on USCIS’ website at uscis.gov/tps.
USCIS will issue new EADs with a Sept. 9, 2019, expiration date to eligible
Salvadoran TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs.
Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration
applications, however, USCIS recognizes that not all re-registrants will receive
new EADs before their current EADs expire on March 9, 2018. Accordingly,
USCIS has automatically extended the validity of EADs issued and currently
valid under the TPS designation of El Salvador for 180 days, through Sept. 5,
On Jan. 8, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen determined
that the statutory conditions supporting El Salvador’s TPS designation on the
basis of an environmental disaster are no longer met. Secretary Nielsen
made her decision to terminate TPS for El Salvador after reviewing country
conditions and consulting with appropriate U.S. government agencies. To
allow time for an orderly transition, she also delayed the effective date of the
termination for 18 months from the current expiration date of March 9, 2018.
As a result of the delayed effective date, El Salvador’s TPS designation will
end on Sept. 9, 2019.
Salvadorans with TPS may wish to consult with qualified immigration attorneys
or practitioners about their eligibility for another immigration status or benefit,
or whether there is any other action they may want to take regarding their
individual immigration circumstances.

Immigrants Students Are Cheering
A late vote in the Washington legislature has the children of immigrants
cheering - literally.
The state House Tuesday night overwhelmingly gave final approval to a
measure to allow high school graduates who came to this country illegally with
their parents to apply for state financial aid.
After the vote, students in T-shirts that read "OneAmerica" cheered the
sponsors of the legislation from within Washington's capitol rotunda.
"Thanks to all of you guys our dream really came true," 15-year-old Salma Silva
said in tearful thanks.
Republican State Sen. Barbara Bailey, the prime sponsor of what she calls the
"Real Hope Act," gently scolded the teen.
"You quit crying," she said."This is a happy day, not a sad day."
Democratic State Rep. Zack Hudgins responsed with a borrowed line from
Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson: "OK, now you all got to go be doctors and
lawyers and such."
The measure will allow undocumented students to receive Washington Need
Grants to attend college. But there’s no guarantee all qualified students will
receive tuition help. Competition for the limited funds is fierce.
Washington Governor Jay Inslee is expected to sign into law the high profile
Washington would become the fourth state, including California, to offer
taxpayer funded financial aid to undocumented students.
