Important Information for Haitians Abroad-TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS (TPS)

Last night (November 20, 2017) the Department of Homeland Security announced plans to end temporary protected status for Haitians.

The Trump administration is ending a humanitarian program that has allowed some 59,000 Haitians to live and work in the United States since an earthquake ravaged their country in 2010, Homeland Security officials said on Monday.Haitians with what is known as Temporary Protected Status will be expected to leave the United States by July 2019 or face deportation.

About 320,000 people now benefit from the Temporary Protected Status program, which was signed into law by President George Bush in 1990, and the decision on Monday followed another one last month that ended protections for 2,500 Nicaraguans.
