Demings says scrapping TPS would put American children at risk

President Trump’s announced proposal to end the temporary legal immigration status (TPS) for some 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants has angered many lawmakers, including freshman Congresswoman Val Demings (D), who recently tweeted a press release outlining that the hardship that the immigration measure would cause on tens of thousands of American children.

“As a former social worker who worked with foster children, I believe that every child has the right to a safe, stable and joyful life. The administration’s decision today will cause 200,000 children who are American citizens to either lose their parents or be forced out of the only home they have ever known.

“DHS refused to take into account the fact that El Salvador is riddled with violence. The administration wants to send families with American children to a country overrun with gang violence, including the MS-13 gang. It is deeply immoral to evict families from their lives and homes. These families have called America home for decades. They are part of our communities, our schools, our churches. Their children are citizens.

“Protecting America’s TPS holders makes our communities and our country better. America’s diversity makes us great. Our compassion and our empathy make us great. I’ll keeping fighting to protect every American family.”-Demings release
