Washington, D.C. -- Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement after the Department of Homeland Security announced it will end Temporary Protected Status for 200,000 Salvadorans living in the U.S.

“Today the Trump Administration put targets on the backs of nearly 5,700 Salvadoran TPS holders in Nevada. I am co-sponsoring the American Promise Act to protect the men and women who came here two decades ago to flee danger and build prosperous lives. Republicans should join me in defending the valuable contributions these folks make in our community every day and the $200 million Salvadorans generate in Nevada every year. Voting on the bill now is the best way to find a permanent solution to this attack on immigrants.”
