End Of Temporary Status Could Mean Haitian Immigrants Have To Leave US

The Trump administration says it will end the temporary status that shelters almost 60,000 Haitians from deportation, saying the island nation has sufficiently recovered from devastating disasters to take its citizens back. President Barack Obama granted the special status to Haitians the following year.

By far the largest group of Haitians covered by the order live in Florida, with another large community in NY.

In Haiti's case, temporary status was granted after a huge quake hit the island in 2010, killing more than 200,000 people, according to government estimates. More than 2.5 million people, roughly a quarter of the population, live on less than $1.23 a day. But the Department of Homeland Security said conditions in Haiti have improved significantly since the quake, and the number of displaced Haitians has fallen by 97 percent. Haiti has made "significant progress", the official added.

Median household income was $50,000 for Salvadorans, $40,000 for Hondurans, and $45,000 for Haitians.

DHS Acting Secretary Elaine Duke announced on Monday that the protections will come to an end on July 22, 2019, according to a statement by from the Department of Homeland Security.

"Since the 2010 quake, the number of displaced people in Haiti has decreased by 97 percent", said Duke.

But advocates and some politicians said Haiti has not improved enough for those protected to face deportation. A United Nations military force has left, though an global police force remains. The formerly protected immigrants have about a year to leave the U.S.

Approximately 46,000 Haitians were allowed to enter the US and work without fear of deportation, according to the Pew Research Center. Not renewing temporary status marks a change in policy when compared to previous administrations.

In granting another 18 months of protected status for Haitians, Duke apparently responded to requests by advocates and members of South Florida's congressional delegation, who signed a letter in September saying that statistics showing progress in Haiti masked serious problems. Citizens of 10 countries now have that status. The administration is expected to make a decision on their status in January. TPS for those immigrants expires March 9.
