SCOTUS Rules 400,000 Illegal Aliens Can’t Become Permanent Residents

Roughly 400,000 illegal immigrants who are under Temporary Protected Status will not be eligible to apply for permanent residency.

The Supreme Court unanimously decided Monday that those with TPS would be unable to get green cards, as it conflicts with the current format of the program, The Associated Press reported. . .

“A TPS recipient who entered the United States unlawfully is not eligible under §1255 for LPR status merely by dint of his TPS. Section 1255 provides that eligibility for LPR status generally requires an ‘admission’ into the country — defined to mean ‘the lawful entry of the alien into the United States after inspection and authorization by an immigration officer.’ §1101(a)(13)(A). Sanchez did not enter lawfully,” the case’s syllabus explained. (Read more from “Supremes Unanimously Rule 400,000 Illegal Aliens Can’t Become Permanent Residents” HERE)
