Some 400,000 immigrants who fled El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti and Sudan to evade disasters natural and man made may be sent back to their native lands after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit (Ramos v. Wolf) said a Trump administration decision to end their temporary protected status (TPS) is Constitutional.
Plaintiffs will likely appeal the ruling, which agrees with President Trump that ‘temporary’ means ‘not permanent’, even for people who fled earthquakes, hurricanes and civil war. Starting in March 2021, the TPS immigrants and their U.S.-born children may hear the U.S. president say, “Go home”…unless Joe Biden is president.
Could the timing of the opinion hurt Trump at a time when Latinos for Trump rally around the country for his reelection?
