Appeals court sides with Trump over drawdown of immigrant protections
The Hill, Sep 14, 2020

A panel of judges of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday to uphold the Trump administration's drawdown of temporary protected status (TPS) designations for a handful of countries, which allow more than 400,000 foreign nationals to live and work in the United States.

The panel ruled to lift an injunction in a case filed by citizens of El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti and Sudan and their U.S. citizen children against the Trump administration's management of TPS.

Under Trump, the Department of Homeland Security has acted to eliminate TPS designations, which allow citizens of certain countries to live and work in the United States.

The program was renewed by Democratic and Republican administrations for more than two decades, essentially without changes.

The original lawsuit alleged that the Trump administration violated the Administrative Procedures Act and acted based on racial animus in eliminating TPS designations for those countries.

In October 2018, a district court granted the plaintiffs a preliminary injunction, which the 9th Circuit lifted Monday.

Because of extensions granted by the Trump administration during the court proceedings, the earliest TPS beneficiaries could lose their permission to reside in the country is March 2021.

But the case is expected to move on to the Supreme Court, which would likely delay any effects on plaintiffs.
