If i have TPS can i apply for DREAMers?

I came from el salvador as a 2 year old and was able to get TPS. Turns out the country's TPS benefits expire next year and it may not get renewed. If so will i get deported or apply for DREAMers? I meet all the requirements And if possible, how may apply for residency? Thank you so much for answering.

    TPS is a temporary benefit that does not lead to lawful permanent resident status or give any other immigration status. However, registration for TPS does not prevent you from:

    Applying for nonimmigrant status

    Filing for adjustment of status based on an immigrant petition

    Applying for any other immigration benefit or protection for which you may be eligible

    No. You are not eligible for deferred action if you have TPS. You are also not eligible for residency.

    We can only hope that TPS is not renewed, it has gone on for far too long.

    No. Persons with TPS are specifically mentioned as being ineligible.
