"Our sense of freedom has been stripped away. It's fear and it's stress. Most people fear all law enforcement now." - Farrah Larrieux, TPS recipient and AI Justice client.
Miami, FL - November 21, 2017 - Last night, on the cusp of a holiday celebrating family, immigration, and welcoming all to our tables, we learned that Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Elaine Duke decided to terminate Haitian Temporary Protected Status (TPS), giving Haitians 18 months to pack their bags. This announcement was a painful and cruel reminder of how little our government seems to care about Haitians and other TPS recipients who have lived here for upwards of 20 years and have raised families that include nearly 275,000 U.S. born children.
