Maryland Attorney General News Releases Update

Attorney General Frosh Joins Effort to Defend Temporary Protected Status Holders Before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today joined a coalition of 22 attorneys general filing an amicus brief in Ramos v. Nielsen before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The brief supports the plaintiffs’ efforts to prevent the potential deportation of hundreds of thousands of people who hold Temporary Protected Status (TPS). This brief asks the Ninth Circuit to uphold the preliminary nationwide injunction that plaintiffs obtained in the district court, blocking the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from terminating TPS designations for Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Sudan.

“Deporting TPS holders in Maryland, and beyond, does not serve the public interest,” said Attorney General Frosh “These deportations would cause irreversible and harm to families, our workforce, and the individuals who would be returned to countries in the midst of crises and widespread violence, where their lives could be seriously jeopardized.”
