Attention HAITI / Atención HAITÍ

The United States government extended the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) immigration protection for Haitians for 18 months, with the decision to prevent the deportation of more than 100,000 people from the country.

The US Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, reported how this will benefit Haitians residing in the US as of May 21.

To justify the decision, Mayorkas stressed that Haiti “is currently experiencing serious security problems, social unrest, an increase in human rights abuse, rampant poverty and a lack of basic resources, which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.” For this reason, US President Joe Biden has decided to support Haitians who are already in his territory "until conditions in Haiti improve so that they can return safely."
