Judge Temporarily Halts Trump TPS Order

JUDGE HALTS TPS TERMINATIONS: "A federal judge late Wednesday blocked the Trump administration's move to end Temporary Protected Status for more than 300,000 nationals from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan," Pro's Ted Hesson reports. "The move temporarily halts the administration's plan to force the beneficiaries — some of whom have lived in the U.S. for decades — to find another immigration status or face deportation."
"In a 43-page order, San Francisco-based U.S. District Court Judge Edward Chen concluded the TPS recipients from those countries, along with their children, will 'indisputably' suffer irreparable harm and hardship as a result of the decision to sunset their enrollment. Chen, an appointee of President Barack Obama, wrote that TPS recipients with U.S.-born children could face a difficult choice: Bring their children with them — 'tearing them away from the only country and community they have known' — or leave them behind in the U.S."
