Noting its dismay over the government’s apparent policy of “opposition for the sake of opposition,” the Sixth Circuit found that the plain language of INA §244(f)(4) supports a path to permanent resident status under §245 for the plaintiff who initially entered the U.S. without inspection (EWI).
This case illustrates the archaic and convoluted state of our current immigration system. While many suggest that immigrants should simply “get in line” and pursue a legal pathway to citizenship, for Saady Suazo and other similarly situated Temporary Protected Status beneficiaries, the Government proposes that there is simply no line available for them to join. The law does not support such a conclusion in this case.
This case stated that under certain circumstances, some one on TPS, maybe eligible to file for their “green card”.
