Trump Admin Revokes Protected Immigration Status for Nearly 60,000 Haitians

In its latest immigration crackdown, the Trump administration has announced it will revoke a special immigration program for nearly 60,000 Haitians, including many who came to the United States after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The Trump administration now says their temporary protected status, or TPS, will end in July 2019. This is Marleine Bastien, executive director of Haitian Women of Miami, speaking on Democracy Now! earlier this year.

Marleine Bastien: “It is in the best interest, national interest of the U.S., for the 50,000-plus Haitians to remain here, continue to contribute, socially, financially and otherwise, and then keep these remittances flowing, so that people will not risk their lives to come here as a result of these, you know, waves of deportation.”
