TPS Holders Potentially Eligible to Become Permanent Residents
April 30, 2018

Two courts of appeals, Ramirez v. Brown, 852 F.3d 954 (9th Cir. 2017), and Flores v. USCIS, 718 F.3d 548 (6th Cir. 2013), have held that a grant of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) may make an individual eligible for adjustment of status. Both courts held, as a matter of statutory interpretation, that Congress intended TPS recipients to be considered “admitted” for purposes of INA § 245(a). Those who enter without inspection—such as the plaintiffs in both cases— generally are ineligible for adjustment under INA § 245(a).2 Pursuant to Ramirez and Flores, however, a grant of TPS status subsequent to the unlawful entry constitutes an inspection and admission, thus satisfying this § 245(a) requirement. The TPS statute, as interpreted in Ramirez and Flores, does not render a recipient eligible to adjust but rather provides only that the individual meets the one threshold requirement for adjustment.
