The Biden Administration has redesignated Haiti and Haitians for Temporary Protected Status. Haitians enjoyed this designation since after the earthquake that hit the country in 2010. The Trump Administration tried to take away that designation (in my view unconstitutionally), and President Biden issued the decision yesterday to redesignate Haitians and protect them from removal from the United States. This is a big win for the Haitian community.
Secretary of Homeland Security Mayorkas announced the designation on May 21, 2021. The designation remains for 18 months. Applicants under the program who were physically present in the United States as of May 21, 2021, may apply for the status.
Applicants for Haiti’s Temporary Protected Status program must meet the following criteria:
Applicants who meet any of these factors do not qualify for Temporary Protected Status for Haitians:
Nationals of Haiti and people who last resided in Haiti who wish to register for Temporary Protected Status must submit the following:
I have argued in a previous post that the method used by the Trump Administration to strip Haitians of these protections were unconstitutional. I am glad that the Biden Administration has realized that mistake and corrected it. Please call the American Dream Law Office at 1(888)786-4507 24/7 to schedule a strategy session with Attorney Ahmad Yakzan.
