"El Salvador's foreign minister said Tuesday he hopes for a more permanent situation for the "temporary protected status" that currently shields about 190,000 Salvadoran migrants in the United States.

Hugo Martinez told local media that "it isn't a question of boxing ourselves into just an extension of the TPS," which has been extended several times by the U.S. since 2001.

"We should erase this word 'temporary' from the map," Martinez added, saying Salvadorans need "something better and more stable than the TPS.""
