Haiti - FLASH : US Immigration Service recommends the end of TPS
James McCamen, Acting Director of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), issued a recommendation to end the Temporary Protection Program in January 2018, benefiting nearly 60,000 Haitians allowed to remain in the United States https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-20679-haiti-flash-nearly-60-000-haitians-fear-that-trump-will-not-renew-the-tps.html

Let's recall that the Obama administration first offered the TPS to Haitians following the devastating earthquake of 2010. This protection has been extended several times and the last period in progress, expires on July 22, 2017.

In his letter, McCament points out that the conditions in Haiti have improved enough to end the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians. He proposes an extension until January 2018 to allow for an "period of orderly transition", and considers that this program should not be extended beyond that.

However, the final decision on the Haitians’ fate rests with the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Secretary John Kelly, which has not yet made that decision, according to spokesman David Lapan.
