On June 7, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a recipient of Temporary Protected Status (TSP) who entered the United States unlawfully is not eligible under the law to adjust status to lawful permanent residence (LPR) “merely by dint of his TPS.”  Sanchez v. Mayorkas, 593 U. S. ____ (2021).  Eligibility for LPR status generally requires an admission into the country, which means a lawful entry into the United States after inspection by an immigration officer.  The Supreme Court decided that receiving TPS does not eliminate the effect of unlawful entry.  The ruling does not deprive TPS recipients of their protected status or work authorization.
