COUNCIL MEMBER MATHIEU EUGENE AND THE HAITIAN-AMERICAN COUNCIL FOR UNITY AND EMPOWERMENT (HACUE) URGE YOUR SUPPORT TO CALL UPON PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND THE SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY TO EXTEND THE TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS (TPS) FOR HAITI.
Whereas Haiti has suffered horrific devastation from multiple natural disasters, including four tropical storms in 2008, the horrific 2010 earthquake, and the recent hurricane in 2016
Whereas Haiti cannot withstand an influx of deported Haitian nationals who will put additional strain on the country’s ongoing economic challenges
Whereas Haiti has a severely damaged socioeconomic infrastructure, which the government is still in the process of rebuilding
Whereas Haiti is coping with an unprecedented outbreak of cholera and other public health crises
Whereas Haiti has gone through tremendous political unrest and is working to stabilize its government institutions
We, the undersigned, request that the President of the United States and the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, hereby extend the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti as a humanitarian gesture that will alleviate the country’s socioeconomic burden and ease its recovery.
