Employment authorization for workers from El Salvador who are covered under Temporary Protected Status (TPS) will be extended for an additional 12 months, through Jan. 4, 2021.
The Department of Homeland Security announced the extension Oct. 28, after an agreement was reached between the United States and El Salvador. The agreement provides that the two countries will cooperate on information sharing, border security and illegal migration. It also provides for a yearlong transition period for Salvadoran TPS holders to repatriate to their country after the conclusion of a lawsuit challenging the U.S. decision to terminate TPS for El Salvador.
There are approximately 250,000 Salvadorans in the U.S. with TPS-provided work permits.
