BREAKING: Supreme Court Rules 9-0 on Sanchez case, delivering huge blow to adjustment of status for TPS Holders

See Supreme Court Ruling

Nationwide– Today, The US Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Sanchez V. Mayorkas lawsuit, ruling that a grant for TPS does not count as a lawful admission into the United States, which is one of the requirements for adjusting the TPS status towards a permanent status.

In response to the recent news, the National TPS Alliance made the following remarks:

Although this is a huge blow for one of the only available avenues for our families to adjust their status, this will not deter our struggle for obtaining green cards for all TPS holders. This news only emphasizes the fact that congress must act now to guarantee permanent residency and for President Biden to expand the TPS status to everyone who deserves it.” –Claudia Lainez, TPS Holder, Regional Organizer for the National TPS Alliance


The National TPS Alliance is a grassroots organization comprised of over 50 committees nationwide, advocating for the permanent residency of beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status from the countries of El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Nicaragua, Nepal, Syria, Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Yemen
