ICYMI: USA Today, “With Kavanaugh, Supreme Court to decide pending cases affecting more than 1 million immigrants”

 

Kavanaugh’s Elevation Could Impact the Ultimate Fate of Ramos v. Nielsen Following the Injunction Last Week on the Trump Administration’s Termination of TPS

In an article for USA Today, Alan Gomez brings up the future of immigration policy in light of Brett Kavanaugh’s recent confirmation to the Supreme Court. Gomez highlights that the Supreme Court could be forced to decide on the lawsuit Ramos v. Nielsen that claims the administration’s termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Sudan was racist and unconstitutional.

Gomez’s article is excerpted below and available online here:

When Justice Brett Kavanaugh settles in for his first week on the Supreme Court, he will inherit cases that will determine the short-term fate of more than 1 million immigrants and possibly change the course of the nation’s immigration system for decades.

… The court could decide whether a federal judge in California was justified when he blocked the administration last week from terminating most of the Temporary Protected Status program, known as TPS, which has allowed more than 300,000 foreigners to legally live and work in the USA as their home nations recover from civil strife and natural disasters.
