Letter to DHS Secretary Kelly Urging Extension of TPS Designation for Haitians

On April 17th USCCB/MRS, CCUSA, CRS, and CLINIC sent a letter to DHS Secretary Kelly requesting an extension of TPS for Haiti of 18 months. MRS and partners urge an extension on the basis of continued country conditions in Haiti resulting from Hurricane Matthew and other factors. TPS is set to expire on July 22, 2017. The U.S. government must act by April 22, 2017 which is 90 days from the expiration date.
