Judge Denies Trump Bid to Toss Immigration Protections Case
A federal judge on Monday denied the Trump administration's bid to throw out a lawsuit that alleges its decision to end special protections shielding Haitian, Salvadoran and Honduran immigrants from deportation was racially motivated.
U.S. District Judge Denise Casper's ruling means the case that seeks to block the administration from terminating temporary protected status for thousands of immigrants from those three countries can move forward. She also rejected the administration's request to remove Republican President Donald Trump as a defendant in the case.
Marleine Bastien, Executive Director of Family Action Network (FANM), stated, “This decision is encouraging news. It is obviously a step in the right direction This case has a long way to go; however, we remain confident that we will prevail.”
Please Call the Department of Justice at 202-353-1555. Ask Congress to find a permanent solution for all TPS recipients.
FANM's mission is to empower low to moderate income families socially, financially, and politically and to give them the tools to transform their communities.
