Federal judge blocks TPS status

Thousands of immigrants in the Miami area are here because of Temporary Protected Status (TPS). These immigrants come from Haiti and other Central American countries who came to the U.S. after war or natural disasters in their country. Recently, a federal judge has stopped the Trump administration from terminating the TPS status, which is part of U.S. immigration law.

The Trump administration has been trying to end TPS status for hundreds of thousands of people living in the United States for many months. Over 300,000 people who live in the U.S. came here because of a natural disaster or war that happened in their native country. Many of them have been in the U.S. for decades and have built a life for themselves and raised their family here.

A federal judge recently halted the administration and U.S. Department of Homeland Security from terminating TPS status. the judge sided with the ACLU of Southern California, National Day Laborer Organizing Network and a private law firm, which argued that the administration's decision to end the program was race-related and families would be adversely affected. The government has said they will appeal the ruling.

Immigrants in the U.S. have found that they are not always welcomed by the U.S. government. Living in the U.S. as an immigrant can be complicated, with many legal issues that arise. An attorney who specializes in U.S. immigration law can help their client wade through the tremendously complicated legal issues that can arise. An attorney understands how important it is for their client to remain in the U.S. with their family and the life they have built. They understand how important U.S. immigrants are to the Miami economy and how they are valued members of our society. An attorney works hard to make sure their client's immigration questions are answered and their legal rights are protected.

Immigrants who are in the U.S. under TPS status are relieved to know that their right to stay has been extended for now. Everyone deserves a chance at a better life and immigrants often come to the U.S. for these reasons.
