#Immigration Update #TPS #Haitian Nationals

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is recommending that the United States end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitian nationals in January 2018.  Eliminating the program will create a hardship for those that have been here for the last seven years.  

A final decision rests with Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.   That decision will impact about 50,000 Haitians if it is decided to end the program.
