The Trump Administration Just Gave Haitians 18 Months to Get Legal or Get Out

Show This To Everyone

The Department of Homeland Security has lifted Haitians’ Temporary Protection Status from deportation, which was granted after the 2010 earthquake in the Caribbean nation.

There is approximately 50,000 Haitians living and working across the country – they will have 18 months — until July 22, 2019 — to go back to Haiti or legalize their status in the U.S., per the Miami Herald.

This comes 14 days after DHS announced it was terminating TPS for 2,500 Nicaraguans and delaying a decision for 57,000 Hondurans, which automatically gave them a six-month extension after their current status expires in January.
