Boston Neighborhood News Report on Haitian TPS Extension Rally

On September 20th, a TPS Extension Rally held in front of the State Capital demonstrated how vital TPS extension is for Haiti.

Check out Brian Concannon as well as our partner organizations speak about TPS extension and how vital it is for Haitian TPS holders:

After having regularly renewed Haiti’s TPS designation in successive 18-month increments, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in early 2017 threatened to end it, but a campaign in which IJDH played a key role won a grudging six-month extension, to January 22, 2018.

We are coordinating and participating in renewed efforts to stave off termination and win an 18 month extension: deportations to Haiti remain unsafe due to incomplete earthquake recovery, the unchecked cholera epidemic, and the ravages of Hurricane Matthew and Haiti can’t safely assimilate 50,000 new deportees nor replace their crucial remittances.
