The Trump administration wants to end Temporary Protected Status, which allows immigrants currently living in the U.S. a chance to stay and work here if something catastrophic happens in their home countries. It’s now up to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to decide if some of these immigrants should be sent home.
