Abstract BOSTON – Today, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice, in partnership with Centro Presente, filed a landmark federal lawsuit against the Trump Administration to save Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Salvadoran and Haitian immigrants.

The lawsuit challenges the decision made by the defendants – President Donald J. Trump, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Elaine Costanzo Duke – to terminate TPS designation for El Salvador and Haiti, citing discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity and/or national origin.
