Salvadorans make up the largest portion of Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, holders in the United States. The Trump administration is trying to end the immigration status for several countries, but the consequences would reach further than the borders of the United States. In the case of El Salvador, it would mean a loss of significant income for the country and a likely increase in emigration. LAND editor Colleen Connolly reports on the impact of TPS in El Salvador. Plus, LAND reporter Vaclav Masek discusses the Panamanian presidential election and what we can expect from the winner, Laurentino Cortizo.

Guests: Cecilia Martínez, Jesse Acevedo, Carlos Dada, Ira Mehlman and Vaclav Masek. Reporter: Colleen Connolly. Hosts: Alanna Elder and Cameron Oakes. Producer: Alanna Elder. LAND editor: Colleen Connolly.
