Temporary Protected Status for Haitians

As Haiti continues to deal with economic hardship it is mistake to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians. Many Haitians who have come to the US and have been able to work in United States. There is an estimated 60,000 Haitians who are currently part of this program.  Haiti is still devastated from the earthquake of 2010 and the need for the US to help the most vulnerable is more urgent than ever.  The United States has always been a nation of immigrants.  The law suit filed by Ira Kaurzban and the National Immigration  Project off the National Lawyer's Guild in the Eastern District of New  York challenging the administration's  termination of TPS for Haitians is a step in the right direction.  Many Haitians are productive members in our society.  It  is important to note that as of now Haitians with TPS can remain in the US until July of 2019.   Updates to follow.
