U.S. media reports say the United States will not renew the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) that has allowed some 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants to remain in the country.Monday was the deadline for the U.S Department of Homeland Security to rule on extending TPS for the Salvadorans.Federal officials grant TPS for citizens of certain countries in cases of extreme hardship - generally natural disasters or war - that make it difficult for immigrants from those nations to safely return. As part of the process, the U.S. government reviews how the situation is changing - and whether it has improved enough to lift the TPS protection.
