ACLU sues Trump administration over termination of protected status for immigrants

The ACLU of Southern California  on behalf of several people with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and citizens whose parents have Temporary Protected Status, filed [press release] a lawsuit in federal court on Monday challenging the Trump Administration’s termination of protected status that could push over 200,000 people out of the country.

The Trump administration has terminated TPS for all people from El SalvadorHaiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan.

The suit contends that the Trump Administration’s interpretation of the TPS statute [8 U.S.C. § 1254a] is unconstitutional because it interferes with the right of school-aged citizen children of TPS beneficiaries to reside in the country. The young citizens would have to choose whether to leave the country or to remain without their parents.
