Homeland Security Ends Temporary Deportation Protection for 60000 Haitians

Haitian immigrants and supporters rally to reject DHS Decision to terminate TPS for Haitians at the Manhattan borough in New York U.S. No

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security says it will permanently terminate Temporary Protected Status, also known as TPS, in July 2019 for thousands of Haitians who fled to the United States after their island was ravaged by an quake in 2010. Further details about this termination for TPS will appear in a Federal Register notice.

If TPS is not extended, Haitians sent home will face dire conditions, including lack of housing, inadequate health services and low prospects for employment.

"I completely disagree with the characterization that the situation in Haiti has improved", she added.

Duke, in her statement, said that she met recently in Washington with Haiti's foreign minister and the Haitian ambassador to the United States, and consulted other USA government agencies.

On May 13, 2017, people in Miami protest the possibility that the Trump administration may overturn the Temporary Protected Status for Haitians.

TPS holders, who include a relatively small number of Africans in addition to Central Americans and Haitians, "have more than 270,000 USA -born children", she said in a statement, "and thousands of grandchildren". Many Haitians depend on the financial support from family members overseas, which amounted to $2.4 billion in 2016 and has grown steadily every year since 1998.

"The law makes it clear that TPS for Haiti must end", he said. Since then, almost 800,000 Haitians have contracted cholera, resulting in 10,000 deaths from the disease alone.

A man walks next to a dresser on a beach after Hurricane Matthew in Damassins, Haiti, October 22, 2016. As a result, access to clean water is limited.

At least 16 percent of Haitian TPS holders have lived in the USA for at least two decades.

Immigration advocates have said it is wrong and unfair to consider sending large numbers of immigrants back to troubled countries, particularly Haiti. Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere, is still recovering from the natural disaster, despite claims from DHS that "significant steps have been taken to improve... stability" in Haiti.

"The decision to terminate TPS (temporary protected status) 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", DHS said in a statement.

And once they're gone, they're Haiti's problem again. That gives TPS recipients an 18-month period to either return to their homeland or be deported. As Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere and as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I continue to strongly support USA initiatives that promote good governance and security, combat poverty and health epidemics, and advance economic opportunities for the people of Haiti.

The Associated Press reported that a Trump administration official was digging for "unorthodox" information on Haitian TPS recipients as DHS considered the extension: crime data and information related to public benefits. Meanwhile, those who stayed in Haiti are anxious about what will happen to fragile Haitian economy when this decision dents the money sent home from the mainland, which accounts for an estimated 25% of Haiti's GDP.
