"Trump's decision to deport 200,000 to his 'shithole countries' challenged in lawsuit"

Administration recently terminated temporary protected status for all individuals from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan

"A lawsuit is being filed on Monday to overturn Donald Trump’s decision to end immigration protections for more than 200,000 people from four Central American and African nations the president reportedly called “shithole countries”.
