Compare and contrast, in both tone and content:
Donald Trump’s administration has decided to cancel permits that allow nearly 200,000 people from El Salvador to live and work in the US.
They were granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS) after earthquakes rocked the Central American country in 2001.
Salvadoreans now have until 9 September 2019 to leave or face deportation, unless they find a legal way to stay.
The Trump administration’s decision Monday to send home Salvadorans who have long lived in the U.S. brings to a close nearly two decades of policy that let nearly half a million immigrants from nations affected by disasters remain in the country.
Since the fall, the administration has ended a series of humanitarian programs benefiting immigrants from Central America and elsewhere. Separately, President Donald Trump ended a program advanced by his Democratic predecessor that protected from deportation young immigrants, known as Dreamers, who were brought to the U.S. as children.
All told, more than a million immigrants granted permission to work and live in the U.S. are being told they must eventually leave, absent action from Congress.
Nearly 200,000 people from El Salvador who have been allowed to live in the United States for more than a decade must leave the country, government officials announced Monday. It is the Trump administration’s latest reversal of years of immigration policies and one of the most consequential to date.
Homeland security officials said that they were ending a humanitarian program, known as Temporary Protected Status, for Salvadorans who have been allowed to live and work legally in the United States since a pair of devastating earthquakes struck their country in 2001.
THE BIG IDEA: A Manchurian Candidate who was secretly trying to alienate Hispanics would be hard pressed to do as much damage to the Republican brand as President Trump.
What you say, what you leave out, and how you say it, matters.
