Temporary Protected Status Revoked For Haiti and Nicaragua

Temporary Protected Status Revoked For Haiti and Nicaragua

The Trump administration has given more than 50,000 Haitians with provisional legal residency in this country 18 months to leave, announcing Monday that it will not renew the Temporary Protected Status that has allowed them to remain here for more than seven years.

The temporary status covers some 435,000 people from nine countries ravaged by natural disasters or war, who came to the USA legally or otherwise.

The Trump Administration plans to end the humanitarian program that allowed 59,000 Haitians to live and work in the United States following the devastating quake in 2010, officials at Homeland Security revealed.

According to DHS figures, 58,706 people from Haiti were protected under the status nationwide. "We have 18 months to continue to mobilize, to continue to organize, to make the case to our government", Forry said.

"No Haitian deserves to go back to Haiti", Dupuy said.

Haitians with TPS will not be targeted by immigration officials for early deportation, senior officials said.

They have 18 months to leave the USA, senior administration officials said.

A senior official briefing reporters Monday said that the 18 month "wind-down is a lengthy time to allow families with US -born children to make decisions about what to do, and make arrangements". TPS now is granted to recipients from 13 foreign countries.

"The Haitian economy continues to recover and grow, and 96% of people displaced by the natural disaster and living in internally displaced person camps have left those camps", Kelly said then.

Thinking about the Haitian TPS population in Massachusetts, Healey said, "I think about the fear, I think about the anxiety and I think about how unnecessary all of this is, and it's why I stood up along with others in advocating for the extension of TPS".

"The decision to terminate TPS for Haiti was made after a review of the conditions upon which the country's original designation were based and whether those extraordinary but temporary conditions prevented Haiti from adequately handling the return of their nationals, as required by statute", said the statement issued Monday night by DHS.

He said earlier this year "people tell me that they want fast, affordable and reliable internet access". Broadband providers have argued that competition will ensure they don't unfairly squelch traffic.

Jean Claude Mompoint, a Valley Stream resident who has a cleaning job at a Brooklyn home for disabled people and has worked a second job transporting people in wheelchairs at LaGuardia Airport, said the prospects are scary without TPS.

Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke believes the county has recovered from the disaster, senior administration officials said.

The decision will upend the lives of thousands of Haitians in the USA, many of whom have taken advantage of their legal status to put down roots, building careers and raising children, many of whom are American citizens.

Dupuy said if someone came into the U.S.to sell drugs or commit terrorism, or got in trouble with the police, they should be deported.

Haitian community leaders in Boston are urging President Donald Trump to reconsider his decision to end Temporary Protected Status for thousands of citizens of the Caribbean nation.

In South Florida, many Haitians work in the healthcare industry.

But now, the Trump administration is ending the program that allowed them to do so.

Rocio Saenz, executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, which claims thousands of members living here under TPS, called the decision "heartbreaking, and harmful in every way".

The decision has potential economic and policy implications for MA. The formerly protected immigrants have about a year to leave the U.S.

"It brings more fear and confusion to our communities", Gonzalez said.
