The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has agreed to rehear a case, Ramos v. Mayorkas, filed by temporary protected status (TPS) recipients and their children, thus granting at least a temporary reprieve to an estimated 300,000 affected TPS recipients. 

A statement by the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California (ACLU SoCal) explained that beneficiaries of TPS and their U.S. citizen children brought the suit in 2018 after former President Trump revoked TPS for individuals from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan, and later for Nepal and Honduras. Although the Biden administration has since redesignated TPS for Haiti and Sudan, the administration has not extended the same protections for the other four countries, ACLU SoCal noted.
