An estimated 200,000 Salvadorans live in the U.S. under the program known as TPS — temporary protected status. The Trump administration announced it was ending TPS for Salvadorans, but earlier this month a federal judge blocked that decision.

Shannon Dooling (@sdooling) of WBUR went to El Salvador to learn how families there, and in Massachusetts, are bracing for what could be the end of TPS.
