As Salvadorans Lose US Protections, Will Some Seek Asylum in Quebec?
Anti-immigration fever strikes again
13 January, 2018, 07:45
During a bipartisan meeting on immigration Thursday, President Donald Trump criticized protections the U.S. gives to immigrants from various underdeveloped countries, including Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries. In addition to being part and parcel of its war on immigrants (particularly low-income ones), it is a denial of US responsibility for much of what drives Salvadorans to flee their homeland and makes life there unviable.
Those in support of ending El Salvador's TPS status argue that the initial event that qualified them for the status is long since over. The law "prohibits judicial review of any determination with respect to the designation, termination, or extension of TPS" and "prohibits the Senate from considering legislation that would adjust the status of TPS aliens to that of a lawful temporary or permanent resident" once the status is removed, according to former House Judiciary Committee immigration counsel Nolan Rappaport. His children are US citizens and his wife is a permanent resident. Moreover, there's nothing to stop the administration, if it wished, from designating these national groups for TPS anew based on current conditions in their countries.
History matters here. Civil war wracked El Salvador from 1980 to 1992 (the U.S. backed the government in its bloody suppression of a leftist insurgency), which sparked an exodus of Salvadorans to the U.S. In Los Angeles, that led to the creation of the notorious Salvadoran gangs, such as MS-13, whose leaders and members eventually were deported back to El Salvador, planting the seeds for the rise there of the powerful street and drug gangs that have made contemporary El Salvador numbingly violent.
Congress and President Donald Trump are working to extend the popular immigration program, so he may be able to stay, even if his parents can't.
As Temporary Protected Status (TPS) ends for about 200,000 Salvadorans living in the USA, some may venture to Quebec, following other groups who have also lost protections under the Trump administration. That's the likely impact of phasing out the Temporary Protected Status, a 20-year program aimed to help people come here from countries suffering from natural disasters and armed conflicts.
In the same way, the assistant of the Minister of Immigration, Hursh Jaswal, assured that immigrants who need protection would be allowed to stay, while the others will be "removed" from the country.
Added Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, "It would be devastating to send them home after they have created a humble living for themselves and their families". "Unified is part of the resistance to this administration's inhumane actions, and we will continue to embrace every learner, family and staff member, regardless of their citizenship status".
As an example, he noted that in 2016, the country received 52,000 deportees from the United States and Mexico.
The tepid approach to the USA announcement came after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent out a tweet a year ago stating Canada's welcoming stance on refugees and asylum seekers.
Laborers President Terry O'Sullivan said Trump's eviction "will cause extreme suffering" not just for Salvadoran TPS cardholders, but for their families, including 194,000 US -born children. "Before leaving your job, pulling your child from school and selling your house to come to Canada, make sure you understand the rules and the laws".
"We are not being complacent", he said.
But still, many, like Honduran immigrant Danilo Aleman, who stripped asbestos for three months, felt a duty to the United States.
