EXTENDED TEMPORARY PROTECTION STATUS (TPS) FOR THE HAITIAN CITIZENS UNTIL JANUARY 2021
***** EMBASSY OF THE REPUBLIC OF HAITI IN WASHINGTON, DC – Due to a pending litigation, on Friday October 31, 2019, the Homeland Security (DHS) extended the Temporary Protection Status (TPS) for the holders of the Republic of Haiti and other nations until 4 January 2021.
However, the Embassy urges all the bodies involved in the struggle for the extension as well as the holders of the status to continue their efforts with the Congress of the United States of America, particular, to the Senate where the Dream and Promise Act of 2019 is being studied. If the law is approved, more than fifty thousand Haitian citizens with temporary protection status (TPS), millions of beneficiaries of the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrival (DACA) and the Deferred Enforced Departure (DED), will immediately begin the procedure of obtaining permanent residence and then American citizenship. The applicant must have been in the country for at least three years, have had the status (TPS) since September 2016, and have successfully completed the verification of his criminal record and other background (background check). In addition, after five (5) years of permanent residence (green card), the three groups will be able to apply for US citizenship.
Immigrants who have been sentenced for crimes punishable by more than one (1) year in prison, or for at least three offenses involving sentences of more than 90 days of incarceration, will not be eligible.
