Today, the US District Court for the Western District of Washington decided a case that says that TPS is an admission for adjustment of status purposes.
To apply for a green card inside the US, an alien has to have a legal entry. If an alien entered illegally, he can still apply for a green card, but the process must be done in his home country. This often involves a long wait for family members! In Washington, however, the federal court has just held that an alien in TPS status can do all the green card paperwork here inside the US and does not need to return to their home country.
