>> Shame on you!>> Shame on Trump!>> Shame on you!>> Anger and frustration outside the White House Monday, after President Trump decided to end temporary protections for hundreds of thousands of immigrants from El Salvador. His latest move to tighten US policy on immigration. The Department of Homeland Security announced Monday, it's terminating the temporary legal status that allowed them to live in the US after a deadly earthquake in El Salvador in 2001.

Meaning 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants may have to return home after September 2019. Reporter Yaganda Torbodi is following the story.>> Now what the administration says is that the event that sparked that status being given to Salvadorans has now been resolved. El Salvador has been able to rebuild hospitals, schools, roads, homes, and therefore, those extenuating circumstances, the disaster that really sparked the Salvadorans being granted that status in 2001 no longer exists and therefore, they should go back.

>> The White House says the 18-month delay will give the immigrants time to either leave or seek lawful residency. The decision is part of a broader push by the Trump administration, thousands of Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Hondurans risk losing similar protections. But immigrant advocates are blasting the move, saying Salvadorans and their children who have been in the US for many years should not be sent back to a country struggling with a weak economy and widespread gang violence.
