ICYMI: Brief Injunction for TPS Holders Provides Temporary Relief From Imminent Deportation, Highlights How Congress Must Act Now

 

Last week, Judge Edward Chen issued a preliminary injunction blocking the administration’s termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for legal immigrants from El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Sudan. While the decision was cheered by TPS holders and advocates nationwide, it is a temporary relief for a much bigger crisis. The injunction will only remain in effect until the lawsuit challenging the administration’s decision to eliminate TPS is filed.

Inaction by Congress would be devastating as forced deportations could separate over 270,000 U.S. citizen children from their TPS holder-parents and send over 300,000 people back to countries they no longer know in fragile conditions.

Below is coverage from last week’s decision from the ongoing litigation in Ramos v. Nielsen lawsuit:
