This TPS will provide protection from deportation and permission to work for eligible nationals of Haiti. More than 100,000 Haitians living in the US potentially stand to benefit from the redesignation.
Haiti was originally designated for TPS following the 7.0 magnitude earthquake in 2010. The effects of the devastating earthquake in 2010 exacerbated the severity of conditions of the country and those conditions have not abated.
Glory Kilanko, Founder and CEO, Women Watch Afrika stated: “During an unprecedented global pandemic, it is more important than ever that everyone stand in solidarity with immigrant communities in the United States. We commend Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and the Biden administration for honoring their pledge to reinstate TPS for Haiti, prioritizing humane and pragmatic solutions for immigrant communities.”
