Half-Hour for Haiti Action Alert: November 28, 2011 Take Action to Urge President Obama to Create the Haitian Family Reunification Program Now!

Please take two minutes to sign the petition at http://wh.gov/bp7 urging President Obama to authorize a Haitian Family Reunification Program!

One hundred and five thousand Haitians whose family-based visa petitions have been approved by DHS nevertheless remain on a 4 to 11 year wait list in Haiti, where many may not survive. DHS’s prompt parole of some of them by creating a Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program (“FRPP”) would save lives and help Haiti recover.

Ten major editorial boards, the U.S. Conference of MayorsPhiladelphia’s City CouncilU.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Rep. Ileana Ros-LehtinenMassachusetts Governor Deval PatrickU.S. Senators Kerry and Brown and many others have urged the President to instruct DHS to “mirror” the Cuban FRPP by creating a Haitian FRPP.

Please go to http://wh.gov/bp7 to sign the petition.

And please help us get thousands of signatures by broadly disseminating to your network this petition, created by Haitian American diaspora leaders, who also urge endorsers to call your congresspersons to urge the President to authorize this program! 

Create a Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program to help Haiti recover. End the double standard.
