Demand Humanitarian Parole for Haitian Orphans
This petition made change with 373 supporters!
Hundreds of American couples were in the process of adopting children from Haiti when the 7.5 quake hit the country last week. Many Haitian adoptions are now in limbo. Government buildings that were processing adoptions were demolished and many government workers are either feared dead or missing. Orphans in Haiti have also skyrocketed as a result of the earthquake. They are in grave danger of food and water shortages, looting and homelessness, and still separated from their adoptive parents in the United States of America.
The solution is humanitarian parole for these Haitian children who already have homes awaiting them in the United States. This does not expedite the adoption process but it allows these children to be brought to the United States for a temporary period. Besides halting deportations and granting temporary status, this is another way in which DHS can help Haiti.
Please sign-on to this email to be sent to your Congressional members and DHS and follow it up with calls. United States citizens undergoing inter-country adoptions from Haiti should visit this state department page for more information about their individual cases.
