  4. Subsequent Action

    September 14, 2020

    On September 14, 2020, the Ninth Circuit overturned the 2018 district court injunction which had temporarily blocked the Trump Administration's plans to terminate TPS for El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan. However, because the appellate court has not issued its directive to the district court to make that ruling effective, the injunction remains in place as of December 7, 2020. A motion for rehearing en banc was due November 30, 2020. Ramos v. Nielsen (N.D. Cal. Case No. 3:18-cv-01554); (Ninth Cir. Case No. 18-16981).
