The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Sanchez v. Mayorkas, an immigration case involving green card eligibility for temporary protected status (TPS) noncitizens who unlawfully entered the United States. Jose Santos Sanchez and his wife are from El Salvador. He entered the U.S. in 1997, she in 1998. The two have since lived in New Jersey. In 2001, the couple applied for TPS and were approved due to humanitarian conditions in El Salvador. Mr. Sanchez later applied to change his immigration status to become a lawful permanent resident, often referred to as a “green card holder.” His wife did the same. Both were denied because they were never officially inspected and admitted into the U.S. They filed suit in 2015. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reviewed their applications but again denied their requests.

On June 7, 2021, the Court ruled 9-0 that non-citizens who enter the U.S. unlawfully are not eligible to become a lawful permanent residents. close
