My opponent's Borka2 has a unit of Long Riders with Snow Shroud. My Eiryss2 shoots the Long Riders and removes Snow Shroud with her Arcane Interference. I then have Sorscha1 advance and cast Freezing Grip on the Long Riders, making them stationary. On his turn, Borka2 casts Snow Shroud on the Long Riders. Do they lose the stationary effect when he does this?

Lacking immunity: cold is just a condition for the models to be made stationnary, gaining immunity: cold shouldn't matter after being hit by the spell

Bob Marley is correct. Once made stationary it doesn't matter if they become immune to Stationary, cold etc, they have already suffered the effect and it will not be removed.

Actually it probably would matter if there was an effect "Immunity: Stationary", as "Immunity: Fire/Corrosion" for example immediately remove the fire/corrosion continuous effect. But as no such effect exists Falkman is correct.

Not really. Stationary, like Knockdown, is not a continuous effect (which is what the "gaining immunity causes immediate expiration" comes from).

As such, becoming immune to it does not automatically removed the status - see models that are knocked down gaining abilities like Safeguard or Fortify - they cannot be knocked down in the future, but remain knocked down until something compels then to stand (shaking, forfeiting movement/action, etc).

The closest thing would maybe be "Fire's Fury" which states "While suffering the fire continous effect, this model cannot be [...] made stationary [...]"
Also, as has been stated, stationary is not a continous effect.
