Kelly has prolonged Temporary Protected Condition(TPS)for qualified nationals of Haiti( as well as qualified people without citizenship who last habitually lived in Haiti)via Jan. 22, 2018. After speaking with the suitable U.S. federal government firms and also examining country problems, Assistant Kelly has actually figured out that a limited, six-month expansion is called for. Although Haiti has made considerable progression in recouping from the January 2010 quake that prompted its classification, conditions in Haiti sustaining its designation continue to be satisfied right now.
Present beneficiaries of Haiti’s TPS designation looking for to extend their TPS needs to re-register by July 24, 2017.
