Provide benefits to countries devastated by wars or disasters, protect people from deportation and make them work
Washington— The Federal Supreme Court today is ready to stop thousands of people living in the United States for humanitarian reasons from applying to become permanent residents.
In a conference call, the judge seemed to be inclined to the Biden administration’s argument that the federal immigration law prohibits illegal immigrants from now having temporary protected status (TPS). ) Apply for a “green card” to enter the country permanently.
The TPS designation applies to people from countries devastated by war or disasters, protecting them from deportation and allowing them to work legally.
In this case, the government opposes immigration groups, who believe that the 400,000 people covered by the TPS are more tolerant of federal laws. Their advocates say that many people have lived in the United States for many years, have given birth to children of American citizens, and have taken root in this country.
The Ministry of Justice stated that both governments have held this position for 30 years.
President Biden supports changing the law so that TPS recipients and other immigrants can be naturalized. The bill allowing the House of Representatives to adjust the immigration status of people here for humanitarian reasons has already been approved by the House of Representatives, but the chances of being approved in the Senate are not high.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh stated that the courts should “treat the immigration laws they make with caution,” especially when Congress may take action. Kavanaugh asked: “But, on the whole, when Congress is so concerned about immigration, why are we intervening here?”
The case revolved around whether people who entered the U.S. illegally and accepted TPS under the provisions of immigration laws have been “allowed” to enter the U.S.
Judge Clarence Thomas said: “They were obviously not accepted at the border.” Is that a novel? Is it metaphysics? what is it? I do not know”.
The court case involved a couple originally from El Salvador who had been in the country since the late 1990s. In 2001, the United States provided legal protection to Salvadoran immigrants, allowing them to live in the country after a series of earthquakes.
People in 10 other countries/regions also enjoy similar protection; what to say is: Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.
