Can An Immigrant With Temporary Protected Status Get A Green Card?

About 400,000 immigrants in the United States have temporary protected status, meaning the U.S. government protects them against deportation because they fled their home country due to circumstances like war or natural disaster. Some of these individuals have maintained their temporary protected status for decades because they do not qualify for permanent legal residency, also known as a green card. Does the Manner of Entry Matter? If an immigrant under temporary protected status wants to obtain a green card, they must adjust their status.
