TPS Status to End for Immigrants from Four Countries

A decision from a divided U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will end protection for about 300,000 persons who have been living in the U.S. with a Temporary Protected Status (TPS), as to immigrants from Haiti, Sudan, Nicaragua, and El Salvador.  Ramos et al. v. Wolf et al., No. 18-16981 (C.A. 9, 9/14/20). 

TPS allows foreign nationals to work in the U.S. after an armed conflict or national disaster in their home countries.  A temporary injunction blocked the Trump Administration from terminating TPS for immigrants from these four countries, contending that ending these protections was racially discriminatory.  The U.S. Justice Department issued a statement indicating that the lower court injunction had prevented the Department of Homeland Security from taking action that Congress has vested solely within the discretion of the Secretary of Homeland Security - an action that is statutorily precluded from judicial review.
