TPS work permits for El Salvador? How long before they are discontinued?

My fiance has been on TPS since 2001. We are trying to get everything in order to get married and apply for his residency. What are the chances the TPS will end within the next 1 to 2 years?

    As long as Attorney General and the President decide the situations is more settled in the country desingated under TPS, they can announce any time ending TPS on certain country.

    For El Salvador, it is under TPS until March 2009.

    El Salvador: Currently designated through March 9, 2009. Most recent TPS re-registration period from August 21, 2007, to October 22, 2007. EADs are automatically extended through March 9, 2008.

    What is Temporary Protected Status (TPS)?

    TPS is a temporary immigration status granted to eligible nationals of designated countries (or parts thereof). In 1990, as part of the Immigration Act of 1990 (“IMMACT”), P.L. 101-649, Congress established a procedure by which the Attorney General may provide TPS to aliens in the United States who are temporarily unable to safely return to their home country because of ongoing armed conflict, an environmental disaster, or other extraordinary and temporary conditions. On March 1, 2003, pursuant to the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public Law 107-296, authority to designate a country (or part thereof) for TPS, and to extend and terminate TPS designations, was transferred from the Attorney General to the Secretary of Homeland Security. At the same time, responsibility for administering the TPS program was transferred from the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (Service) to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

    During the period for which a country has been designated for TPS, TPS beneficiaries may remain in the United States and may obtain work authorization. However, TPS does not lead to permanent resident status. When the Secretary terminates a TPS designation, beneficiaries revert to the same immigration status they maintained before TPS (unless that status had since expired or been terminated) or to any other status they may have acquired while registered for TPS. Accordingly, if an alien had unlawful status prior to receiving TPS and did not obtain any status during the TPS designation, the alien reverts to unlawful status upon the termination of that TPS designation.

    once you choke somebody you're in extra of a place to beat their head on issues as you're doing so. that's what particularly gets out the unhappiness. Strangling is basically pointless.
