Surprising: Latest update on Ramirez V. Dougherty (formerly titled Ramirez v. Brown), 9TH CIRCUIT TPS CASE

There has been a curious development in Ramirez v. Dougherty (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 (formerly Ramirez v. Dougherty)...

Back in May, the government asked the Circuit Court to extend their time to file a Petition for Rehearing. The Court agreed to extend the time for the government to challenge its ruling until July 20, 2017. As of today, the government has not filed a Petition for Rehearing. Although the government still has procedural options to challenge the ruling, it does appear that as of today...at least in within the jurisdiction of the 9th Circuit...aliens in TPS status can obtain their permanent residency through an approved, current immigrant petition.
