On Monday January 8th, Homeland Security announced that Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Salvadorans will end on September 9th, 2019. Over 200,000 Salvadorans and their families are now at risk, so it is now up to Congress to find a legislative solution. OTOC calls on Congressmen Bacon and Fortenberry, Senators Fischer and Senator Sasse to get involved and craft a solution which provides permanent residency for law abiding, productive residents who have lived among us for many years with only Temporary Protective Status.
OTOC leader Jeanne Schuler says, “OTOC calls on our members of Congress to show leadership. Find a solution. Support the bills that have already been introduced or develop new ones. We need leaders who will serve the people of Nebraska and act. Now.”
OTOC leader Kathleen Grant says, “TPS recipients have lived in Nebraska for almost 20 years. They own homes and businesses. They work in factories, farms and meat packing plants. Their children, most of whom are US citizens, will move our state’s economy forward. They are neighbors. They are at risk.” To see Kathleen Grant in the news speaking about this issue, follow this link to Channel 7’s coverage of Monday’s decision in Omaha
