Trump to end temporary permits for 60,000 Haitians

After a powerful earthquake hit Haiti in January 2010, the then U.S. President, Barack Obama, granted 18 months Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians in America who would otherwise have to go home. Under the TPS, the Haitians were allowed to stay and work in the U.S. The program was renewed by Obama every time it ran out.

The Homeland Security Department has now said that conditions in Haiti have improved significantly and they are asking about 60,000 Haitians to get ready to go back home. However, they’ve been told that the program will be extended one more time so that the Haitians would have enough time to prepare to go back to their country. The new renewal will expire in July 2019.
