Ninth Circuit backs Trump move to bar 300,000 immigrants from staying in US


A federal appeals court sided with the Trump administration in a decision to end protections from deportation for hundreds of thousands of people who were allowed to remain in the United States for up to two decades.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which has dealt more blows than victories to President Trump, ruled 2-1 on Monday to rescind a lower court’s block on the Department of Homeland Security’s move to end the temporary protected status for those from several countries.

The decision means that approximately 300,000 recipients from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan will not be able to renew those protections and will have to return to their home countries, including those who have been in the U.S. for up to 20 years.
