Statement from Mayor Bowser on Extension of Temporary Protected Status for Salvadorans

Monday, October 28, 2019
(Washington, DC) – Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced the extension of work permits for Salvadorans with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) through January 4, 2021.
“We cannot afford further temporary fixes to TPS; it is time for full citizenship for our Salvadoran neighbors, who are part of the fabric of our community and have called DC home for decades. I urge the Senate to take up House-passed legislation to permanently protect Salvadoran TPS holders and provide these aspiring Americans with a pathway to citizenship. With comprehensive immigration reform, together, we can continue to grow our economy and build safer, stronger neighborhoods in DC and across the nation.”
