What are Ellen Stofan's plans for the nation's most visited museum?
Guest Host: Matt McCleskey
On Monday, the Trump administration announced that it is not renewing the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) of immigrants from El Salvador. The program, intended to offer protections for people who are fleeing violence, natural disaster or other unsafe conditions at home, offers legal residency to around 200,000 Salvadorans nationwide –more than 30,000 of whom live in the Washington region. As the decision stands, those individuals, many of whom have lived locally for decades, will be forced to return to El Salvador by September 2019. Kojo explores what the loss of the special program would mean for the local immigrant community and the region at large, which relies on large part on Salvadorans.
