The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled on September 14, 2020, that President Trump can phase out temporary protected status (TPS) for more than 300,000 people in the United States. TPS beneficiaries from Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan could be required to leave the United States (or find another legal way to stay) by March 2021.

An appeal to the Supreme Court is likely.
