Justice Close to Home

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has approved 55,000 Haitians to join their families in the U.S., but they are on a waiting list that could take 4 to 11 years.

IJDH is leading the effort to convince DHS to bring them in promptly.

Here, they’d be out of harm’s way and, importantly, part of the recovery solution: their remittances would support hundreds of thousands of families and friends back home.

We led the effort which won a 6-month extension of the Temporary Protected Status filing period, and we’re leading this fight, which we’re determined to win.

You can help by giving today.

Help us reunite the 55,000 with their families so they can help Haiti recover!
