Honduran and Nepali TPS Holders Sue Trump Administration

HeadlineFeb 12, 2019

Back in the U.S., Honduran and Nepali immigrants filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration in San Francisco over its efforts to end the immigration program known as TPS, or temporary protected status. Lawyers representing around 100,000 people from both communities argue that the move is motivated by racism. In a similar lawsuit affecting TPS holders from Sudan, El Salvador, Haiti and Nicaragua, a federal judge blocked the Trump administration’s plan in October, citing “discriminatory” motivation.
