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

"There is no place in Haiti for them to be".

Miami-Dade's government noted Trump himself once promised to help the Haitian people any way he could.

"This is unfair to a country that has been going through so much, a political, social and economic situation", Dupuy said.

Protesters were planning to gather outside Mr Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, where the president was expected to arrive Tuesday afternoon for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Dupuy said if someone came into the U.S.to sell drugs or commit terrorism, or got in trouble with the police, they should be deported.

FREDERICA WILSON: He has a base that wants everybody deported.

Temporary Protected Status is a designation that temporarily lets residents of certain countries remain in the USA because conditions in their homeland are too risky to return.

At least one Haitian TPS recipient in Brooklyn accepted that eventually she must return.

The protections for people from Haiti, El Salvador and Honduras were set to expire in 2018.

Elaine Duke, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), said in a statement that "extraordinary but temporary conditions caused by the 2010 quake no longer exist", and Haitians who have been living in the United States under the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program have until July 22, 2019 to leave the country, or they will face deportation. Conditions in the poor Caribbean nation have been worsened by the wind and rain of Hurricane Matthew in 2016 as well as a cholera epidemic, many Haitians say.

But from his own experiences traveling to the country in the past year, Wenski said Haiti isn't ready to receive that many people back.

- CASA (@CASAforall) November 21, 2017Trump terminated TPS for Haiti today. "5,400 Haitians with TPS have lived in New York City legally for years, making our city better".

But despite the still-dire conditions on Hispaniola's western half, the Trump administration yesterday announced its final decision on whether to extend TPS for the 60,000 Haitian nationals living under the program for a few more years - and the news isn't good for those in Miami. The announcement follows a decision earlier this month to revoke TPS from about 2,500 Nicaraguans.

"The country is still struggling to recover from the natural disaster and is in no position to receive these individuals who are already making enormous contributions to our country", Gupta added. People previously allowed to live and work here under TPS have until July 2019 to leave, or face deportation. They argue that it is contrary to American values to force people to return to a country that is unsafe and unstable.

Families who spoke to CBC News said the main reason they can't return is that their children barely know the country.

"Everybody wants to come to America", Joseph said.

"It doesn't make sense to cut into the progress that is being made in Haiti by pushing to end TPS at this time", Legislator Aney Paul said. The county is now home to more than 25,000 people. And those facing removal have almost 30,000 US -born children - American citizens who will be separated either from their family or from the country of their birth and upbringing. "This our country", said Mythra Abraham, a Hollywood resident from Haiti. For Haitians with TPS, it means leaving the US on their own or facing deportation if they have not left by the deadline.

Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, said this "is another example of the cruel indifference of the Trump administration and its continued efforts to abandon our country's history as a nation of immigrants". For example, Maria Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for the liberal health care advocacy group Health Care for All, said TPS beneficiaries are now eligible to buy insurance on the state's Health Connector.
