Haiti - Politic : The United States will increase the quota of refugees, with a priority for Haiti
To better manage migration in the Americas, President Joe Biden pledged at the closing of the 9th Summit of the Americas to increase the refugee quota from Latin America and the Caribbean to 20,000 for 2023 and 2024, with particular priority for a greater number of Haitians whose exodus affects the entire continent. An increase compared to the maximum of 15,000 the United States expects to receive in the current fiscal year, which ends in June.

It should be noted, however, that the quota allocated to the Americas during this fiscal year remains low compared to those granted to the other regions, since it represents barely 12% of the maximum of 125,000 refugees that the United States proposes to welcome for the current financial year without counting the opening made to some 100,000 Ukrainian refugees...

To address labor shortages in key sectors of the U.S. economy and limit irregular migration, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Labor (DOL) have made available 11,500 visas additional end of May for H-2B non-agricultural seasonal workers, for nationals of Northern Central America and Haiti.

In addition, the US will resettle more Haitian refugees and resume the Haitian family reunification program.
