El Chalate at 8119 East Colfax and Uinta Stre...

El Chalate at 8119 East Colfax and Uinta Street was started by Marta Leon 10 years ago. She had TPS at the time and says her dream of a restaurant wouldn't have been possible without that temporary permit. Now, she's a permanent resident and says about 90 percent of her customers have TPS. She's afraid the decision to remove these benefits for her clients will be detrimental to her little business. http://www.9news.com/mobile/article/news/colorado-businesses-stand-to-lose-after-200000-salvadorans-in-us-ordered-to-leave/73-506664240

    Colorado businesses stand to lose after 200,000 Salvadorans in US ordered to leave
    An estimated 200,000 Salvadorans live in the United States with Temporary Protected Status, or TPS. Now, all 200,000 of them have been ordered to leave. For Colorado businesses big and small, this decision could be detrimental. TPS is a temporary benefit for people in the country who cannot go back to their homeland because of political turmoil or an environmental disaster.
