In immigration news, the Biden administration has expanded temporary deportation relief to tens of thousands of Haitians after mounting pressure from immigrant rights advocates. Haitian migrants who arrived in the United States as of November 6 will now qualify for temporary protected status, TPS, and the program’s expiration date has been extended from next February to August 2024. Biden officials warned asylum seekers who arrive after the November cutoff date will likely be deported. This comes as Haiti faces a political, economic and humanitarian crisis with skyrocketing violence taking over the streets.
