Update on Ramirez v. Brown, 9th Circuit TPS case

Ramirez v. Brown (No. 14-35633) which holds that recipients of Temporary Protected Status are deemed to be in lawful status and thus are considered to have been inspected and admitted for purposes of adjusting status has been retitled Ramirez v. Dougherty (same case number). On May 4, 2017, the government requested an extension of time until June 29, 2017 to file a Petition for Rehearing. I do not expect the petition to be successful.

Read the decision here.

This decision affects many, many TPS holders. If you have TPS, you should schedule an appointment with us to determine whether we can get you a green card.
