TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) – The U.S. government has extended temporary protection for Hondurans living in the United States by an additional year, the Honduran Foreign Minister Lisandro Rosales said on Friday.

The move follows an announcement by the United States last week to grant a one-year extension to Salvadorans under the same provision, known as temporary protected status (TPS).

“There has been an extension of one year for temporary work permits for our more than 44,000 Hondurans who have been taken in under this measure in the United States,” Rosales told a local radio station.
