Federal Lawsuit: Trump Ending TPS For Haitians, Salvadorans Was Racially Motivated
The Associated Press reports that on February 21, 2018 Haitian and Salvadoran immigrants sued President Donald Trump in federal district court in Boston, Massachusetts, arguing that the Republican administration’s decision to end Temporary Protected Status for qualified citizens of these countries now in the US, shielding them from deportation, was racially motivated. It claims Trump’s move to rescind the program was rooted in animus against immigrants of color, citing comments made by Trump on the campaign trial and in office.
