WASHINGTON– Secretary of Homeland Protection John F. Kelly has actually expanded Temporary Protected Standing(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( and qualified individuals without citizenship that last repeatedly resided in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After seeking advice from the proper U.S. government firms and also evaluating country problems, Assistant Kelly has identified that a minimal, six-month expansion is required. Although Haiti has actually made significant progression in recuperating from the January 2010 earthquake that motivated its classification, problems in Haiti sustaining its designation continuously be satisfied at this time.

At the very least 60 days prior to Jan. 22, 2018, Assistant Kelly will re-evaluate the designation for Haiti and will establish whether an additional extension, a redesignation, or a termination is necessitated, in full compliance with the Immigration and also Citizenship Act. The classification of TPS was meant by Congress to be temporary, and also the Assistant will fully re-evaluate the country conditions to figure out whether Haiti’s TPS classification ought to continue.
