Please note: El Salvador was previously designated under the TPS program, pursuant to section 303 of the Immigration Act of 1990. That designation expired in 1992, at which time TPS beneficiaries were offered Deferral of Enforced Departure (DED), a related form of temporary relief from removal. Those earlier TPS and DED programs are unrelated to the year 2001 TPS designation for El Salvador.
