Yesterday, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Sanchez v. Wolf, which presents the question under the Immigration and Nationality Act whether a Temporary Protected Status (TPS) recipient may adjust his or her status to that of a lawful permanent resident.  The Third Circuit held that TPS recipients were not entitled to adjust their status because TPS status was not an "admission," under 8 U.S.C. § 1255.   The Third Circuit decision in Sanchez conflicts with the rulings of the Sixth and Ninth Circuits.
