In more immigration news, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund has sued the Trump administration over its decision to end temporary status protections for nearly 60,000 Haitian immigrants who have been living in the United States for years. The group is arguing the move was “irrational and discriminatory” and that it was motivated by President Trump’s “public hostility toward immigrants of color.”
