With Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under attack, many immigration lawyers are looking for alternative options for their clients with TPS. The American Immigration Council has issued a practice advisory discussing important decisions from the Ninth and Sixth Circuits—decisions that will open the door for certain TPS recipients who initially entered without inspection to adjust status. The decisions held that a TPS grant is an “admission” for purposes of adjustment of status under section 245(a).

This practice advisory addresses:

  • TPS recipients who are most likely to benefit from the two decisions;
  • other general categories of family and employment-based adjustment applicants who may be able to benefit from these two decisions; and
  • options that may be available to TPS recipients who do not live within these two circuits.
