NPNA Calls on Senate to Prioritize COVID-19 Relief Over Partisan SCOTUS Nomination Fight

“The Senate confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court would threaten the fundamental rights and livelihood of the majority of Americans. The rushed confirmation hearings represent a crude political move to stack the Supreme Court before it may hear cases related to the 2020 election, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and the border wall, in addition to the cases the court is already hearing regarding the Affordable Care Act and discrimination based on sexual orientation.  

Appellate Court Ruling Terminating TPS for Black and Latinx Immigrants is a Concession to a Racist Agenda 

Today, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s preliminary injunction blocking the Trump administration from terminating Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for hundreds of thousands of immigrants originally from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan. The ruling could also negatively impact a separate lawsuit challenging the administration’s termination of TPS for immigrants from Honduras and Nepal.
