Thousands of illegal immigrants who were allowed to stay in the United States for “humanitarian reasons” will no longer be able to become permanent residents, according to the Supreme Court.

The decision was unanimous (9-0), and it came after a married couple from El Salvador (shown below) sued in federal court after being denied green card applications. In the 1990s, the couple illegally entered the United States, but were granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Jose Sanchez and Sonia Gonzalez (shown above) are from El Salvador and entered the US twice illegally.
“A grant of TPS does not come with a ticket of admission,” noted liberal Justice Elena Kagan in the majority opinion in Sanchez vs. Mayorkas. It doesn’t take away the disqualifying consequence of unauthorized entry.”
Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants have TPS, and the Supreme Court’s decision will have an influence on their capacity to become permanent residents, as it should.
