Trump Admin Gives 59,000 Haitians 18 Months To Leave The U.S.

By

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke announced Monday that roughly 59,000 Haitians living in the United States who have been protected from deportation since 2010 have 18 months to leave the United States. Haitians who came to the U.S. after a devastating earthquake hit Haiti in 2010 have been safe under a program known as Temporary Protected Status, enacted by Congress in the 1990s to help large groups of people who fled from natural disasters and wars. More than 30,000 of the affected Haitians live in Florida.
