Action Alert: Urge Continued Protection for Haitians While Their Country Continues to Recover

As a person of faith, and a member of the Justice for Immigrants coalition, I ask you to urge the Administration to provide an 18-month extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti. Additionally, I ask you to support a legislative solution in Congress that will preserve the ability of TPS recipients to continue living and working legally in the U.S.

TPS is a temporary, renewable, and statutorily authorized immigration status that allows individuals to remain and work lawfully in the U.S. during a period in which it is deemed unsafe for nationals of that country to return home. While the current designation for Haiti is set to expire in January 2018, the Department of Homeland Security is required to make a decision to terminate or extend TPS for Haiti by November 23, 2017.
