The Trump administration recently announced the end of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 200,000 immigrants from El Salvador who have been in the U.S. legally since two earthquakes struck the Central American country in 2001. The move means they must leave the country or face deportation. Lawrence Levy, executive dean of Hofstra’s National Center for Suburban Studies. discusses how the decision could affect Latino voters, the Democratic Party, as well as Trump’s anti-immigration base, in a City & State story focusing on Long Island politics.
Earlier this week, Levy was featured in a Politico article about how the new tax law could provide Democratic leaders in states such as New York with an opportunity to raise their national profiles by challenging Trump with state workarounds.
