In 2018, several countries lost their TPS (Temporary Protected Status) designation and a lawsuit against wrongful termination of TPS made it to a federal judge, whose ruling temporarily blocked an immediate termination of TPS. The ruling was appealed and a final decision was not made, as anticipated, in 2019. On November 1, 2019, due to the federal court’s indecision regarding TPS, six countries received additional but contingent time under TPS–until January 2021.
