Ramirez v. Brown, 14-35633

In an action challenging the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service's decision finding him ineligible to adjust to lawful permanent resident status on the ground that because he entered the U.S. without inspection he was not 'inspected and admitted or paroled' as required by 8 U.S.C. section 1255(a), the district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of plaintiff is affirmed where under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) statute, 8 U.S.C. section 1254a(f)(4), a TPS recipient is deemed to be in lawful status and thereby has satisfied the requirements to become a nonimmigrant, including inspection and admission, for the purposes of adjustment of status.
