Update: Extension Of Wind Down For Salvadoran TPS Beneficiaries

Jackson Lewis P.C.

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries from El Salvador will likely have a longer wind down period than beneficiaries from other countries impacted by the recent Ninth Circuit decision.

In October 2019, the United States entered into an agreement with El Salvador addressing national security concerns. El Salvador agreed to implement information sharing, border and aviation security, and other internal diplomacy reforms. In return, Salvadoran TPS beneficiaries were granted an extra 365 days of TPS to repatriate “after the conclusion of the TPS-related lawsuits.” Exactly when those additional 365 days would begin is not immediately apparent, nor is whether these TPS beneficiaries would continue to be eligible for employment authorization, but Jackson Lewis attorneys will continue to monitor developments and provide updates, including as to any upcoming appeals, as they become available.
