In United States, an appeals court that analyzed the possibility of eliminating the Temporary Protected Status (TPS, for its acronym in English) ruled in favor of the Donald Trump government.

The sentence revokes the decision of a lower court that had ordered to maintain the benefit under which they are protected approximately 500 one thousand migrants from El Salvador, Nicaragua, Sudan and Haiti.

Those responsible for deciding on the future of the migrants benefiting from the treaty are the judges of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals based in California..

The magistrates annulled the sentence of a lower judge who had blocked the decision of the North American president, to phase out TPS.

With the new resolution, Salvadorans covered by TPS have up to 5 November next year to voluntarily leave the country, if they pass that date they will be deported.

Many nationals are in the United States with temporary work permits, the TPS, but nevertheless, it has helped them to settle down and form families. There are protected persons who have been living in the North American country for more than a decade.

Migrants benefiting from TPS who come from other nations will have less time, until march next year, to return to their countries of origin.

The judges argued their resolution by ensuring that there is no racial discrimination in the US government's decision and that the complainants did not present enough evidence to support their request..

Before what happened, President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele spoke through his Twitter account: "Remember that the normal extensions were one and a half years. The last, given by President Donald Trump, it was practically 2 years".

The president added that there is a whole year left to dialogue with the United States and seek a viable solution for the affected Salvadorans and their families..
