Habeas – Post Order. Our client had a final order of removal but had TPS and therefore could not be deported. ICE asked the client to obtain travel documents to be removed to El Salvador despite having a valid EAD and TPS. We filed suit to stop removal of the client. ICE agreed that he would not be removed while he had valid TPS status and the case was resolved. Our client is still here in valid TPS status.
