A federal judge in California issued a preliminary injunction on Wednesday to temporarily block the Trump administration from terminating Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for hundreds of thousands of immigrants from from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan.

Why it matters: This is a significant victory for more than 300,000 TPS beneficiaries and advocates seeking to reinstate the program that protects some undocumented immigrants from deportation — many of whom have been living in the U.S. for decades and have children who are American. U.S. District Judge Edward Chen wrote that the government must maintain TPS while a suit challenging its decision plays out in court. Chen's ruling comes as recipients from Sudan were set to lose their protections next month.

Joe Biden hasn't gone out of his way to talk about outer space during his presidential campaign. That could be bad news for NASA's exploration ambitions, but good news for the Space Force.

The big picture: NASA faces two threats with any new administration: policy whiplash and budget cuts. In a potential Biden administration, the space agency could get to stay the course on the policy front, while competing with other priorities on the spending side.
