SACRAMENTO – Sen. Holly J. Mitchell of Los Angeles, whose Los Angeles-based district is home to many Salvadorans, today issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement to end protected status for Salvadorans.

“This is yet another divisive, dangerous and thoughtless move that strikes a blow to those who sought refuge and freedom to work and earn the American Dream,” Mitchell said. “They fled earthquake-ravaged El Salvador to begin new lives away from gangs, poverty and violence.”
