He also thinks some Salvadoran families in the USA could start sending more money back — something that started when Donald Trump was elected president — so remittance figures could rise.

Saenz said referencing the 2001 quake without considering any other risky condition not in relation to the natural disaster is "life-threateningly unsafe". The deadline for returning to El Salvador is September 9, 2019, giving families 18 months to apply for other legal immigration status or make moving arrangements.

Donald Kerwin is the executive director of the Center for Migration Studies.

Like the Haitians, roughly 200,000 Salvadorans already living in the USA were granted protected status in 2001 following a major quake in El Salvador.

Such a wrenching decision faces the Velasco family of Brentwood in eastern Contra Costa County.

In the case of El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua, Arthur said, what was once temporary is now a "quasi-permanent status" for those protected. Almost a quarter of those who will lose their status have mortgages, many have businesses, and a large majority have been gainfully employed for many years, paying taxes and contributing to communities. Any person who has been in this country for more than 10 years and has done nothing wrong should be given the opportunity to become a citizen of the United States. President Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to many of those immigrants.

Added Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, "It would be devastating to send them home after they have created a humble living for themselves and their families". Those permits expire in the coming 18 months.

"Basically, our country's not safe", Canales says, "and it's not prepared enough financially to support these families ..." It's sad that going home will disrupt the lives of the thousands of Salvadorans who have put down roots in this country over the past 17 years, but they agreed when they came here to prepare for just such a return trip.
