Elba Perlera, 47 years old from New Jersey. She is a TPS holder from El Salvador and has one US citizen daughter. Elba has been living in the United States 20 years and runs her own cleaning enterprise where she cleans residential and commercial properties. She has been connected to community organizations for several decades and recently she has been inspired to take a larger role in the Save TPS campaign.
“If TPS is terminated we will lose our rights, our ability to drive legally – to obtain a driver’s license, and we basically get thrown back into the shadows. My objective has been to fight for full permanent residency because I have a daughter who is 12, and she needs to have her parents with her. She needs her family to stay together to ensure that she has a brighter future”
