End All Deportations To Haiti and Grant TPS status to Haitians
This petition made change with 345 supporters!
UPDATE: The Department of Homeland Security has agreed to halt deportations to Haiti for now but we still need to get an official TPS status.
Haiti is already the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with the majority its residents living in desperate poverty. It was still reeling from recovery efforts after four major hurricanes pummeled the country in 2008.The earthquake in Haiti has further aggravated the situation for a country already disintegrating due to successive natural disasters and brought it to heartbreaking proportions. Haitians most definitely meets the criteria for Temporary Protective Status, an entitlement the Obama administration has the ability to designate and swiftly provide.
Sign the petition to
1. Demand an end to all deportations of Haitians, thus allowing the country to stabilize and avoiding placing deportees in surest danger.
2. Ask that President Obama grants Temporary Protected Status to all Haitians for a period of no less than 18 months, and allow the more than 30,000 Haitians currently in deportation proceedings to live and work here legally until the crisis has passed. This is the only just and humane reaction to a growing crisis we have thus far ignored.
3. Contact Attorney General Holder and Secretary Napolitano to temporarily halt all deportations of Haitians
