Inside Sources: Unions Sue to Save Immigrants With Protected Statuses

President Donald Trump’s administration was sued by unions and advocates Monday for reining in a program that helps displaced immigrants by granting them legal status.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California filed the lawsuit alongside the labor unions Unite Here and the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT). The groups are hoping to save hundreds of thousands of immigrants who will soon lose legal status under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program. They launched the legal challenge on behalf of Wilna Destin – a Haitian immigrant within the program who serves as a union organizer.
