The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit ruled that certain people with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) can apply for green cards without leaving the United States.
In Velazquez v. Barr, the Court held that receiving TPS is treated as an “inspection and admission” when someone applies for a green card. These prerequisites are important because immigrants generally cannot receive a green card without leaving the United States unless they were inspected by an immigration official and then admitted or paroled into the country.
