Cansery Goguette has been doing everything he can to secure a steady future; he’s been learning English for the past seven years, was recognized by the Massachusetts Coalition for Adult Education as its 2017 Outstanding Student of the Year, and is just one exam away from receiving his high school diploma. But Goguette, who fled Haiti after the 2010 earthquake left him and his sons homeless, faces deportation if his Temporary Protected Status expires. “If I go back to my country without my high school diploma, I can’t do anything,” Goguette told WCBV, “I want to stay to help my sons.” Goguette won’t just face unemployment if he’s deported, but a country that is still struggling to recover from Hurricane Matthew, as Reliefweb illustrates.
