Thanks to those who’ve e-mailed with word of a line outside Denny International Middle School, including Helen, who took some time to investigate and found out from a waiting family that it involves the El Salvador government. Various web searches finally brought us to this online listing, which describes the event, continuing till 4 this afternoon, as a “mobile consulate” – bringing Salvadorean government services to citizens in the region (as explained here). The family with whom Helen spoke said they’d come all the way from the Tri-Cities. The online listing also says this will continue again 8 am-4 pm tomorrow. This is of particular urgency for many because of an approaching deadline – next Tuesday – for Salvadorean citizens to register for Temporary Protected Status (TPS), as noted here.
