As a immigration and criminal law attorney, Eduardo Paredes represents people living in the United States who are not citizens in their immigration and deportation defense cases. Attorney Eduardo Paredes stays abreast of federal immigration law and policy to effectively advise his clients.

In early January of 2018, the presidential administration announced that it was ending temporary protected status (TPS) for approximately 200,000 Salvadorans. These individuals have been living in the United States since 2001 when the US granted them temporary protected status after an earthquake devastated their home country. Since that time, the government has renewed their TPS permits every 18 months.

The current administration has stated that these permits will become invalid as of September 9, 2019. Before that time, the affected individuals will have to find an alternative path to legal status or prepare for departure.

The action reflects the administration’s recent efforts to reduce the use of TPS protections. The Department of Homeland Security has explained that this trend reflects a renewed focus on the temporary nature of TPS and the perceived need to rescind TPS permits when the circumstances that prompted their issuance are no longer present. Opponents claim that the decision fails to account for the lives and families that the TPS recipients have made in their 17 years in the United States.
