Temporary Protected Status Defeat At The Supreme Court

For many years, immigrant advocates have asserted that a grant of Temporary Protected Status is equivalent to an inspection and admission at the border.

Not so, said the Supreme Court.

Because the equivalence argument failed, TPS beneficiaries lack the eligibility to seek adjustment of their status to permanent residence without leaving the United States.

For many immigrants and their advocates, the reaction was as if the sky was falling.

They claimed the hope of becoming a lawful permanent resident was now gone forever.

But for many TPS immigrants, that’s simply not true.
