Federal Court Allows Trump Administration to Continue Its TPS Plan

In 2017 and 2018, Trump terminated temporary protected status (TPS) designations for El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Sudan. Now, a September 2020 Ninth Circuit federal court ruling (Ramos v. Wolf) has upheld Trump's decision, stating that the temporary protected status program is not reviewable.
