U.S. Representative David N. Cicilline (RI-01), a member of the House Judiciary
Committee, released the following statement:
"The decision to end
Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 200,000 Salvadorans is cruel and
short-sighted. It will tear apart families, disrupt our economy, and undermine
our strategic goals in Latin America."
"Congress must immediately pass legislation to shield these
individuals from deportation by the Trump Administration, and I look forward to
working with my colleagues to make that happen.
