Appeals Court Gives Trump Greenlight to End Immigration Protections for 400,000 TPS Holders

HeadlineSep 15, 2020

A federal appeals court ruled Monday the Trump administration can end immigration protections for some 400,000 people under the temporary protected status program. Nationals with TPS from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan could be subject to deportations starting next year, some as early as January. Many TPS recipients have been living in the U.S. for decades and have children who are U.S. citizens. Plaintiffs say they will appeal the ruling. The National TPS Alliance is launching a cross-country “Journey 4 Justice” caravan next week.
