Trump Puts Haitians in the deportation Pipeline

Last night, as families prepared to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Trump administration cruelly announced their decision to terminate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 50,000 Haitians. This decision is shameful and unconscionable, but unfortunately not surprising for this administration. Since his inauguration, Trump has been carrying out his extreme agenda of mass deportations: conducting massive raids, terminating the DACA program, and ending TPS for Nicaragua, Sudan, and now Haiti.

Did you call?

Last Thursday, two dozen TIRRC youth leaders joined a mass mobilization of more than 1000 undocumented youth and their allies in Washington D.C. for Operation Clean Dream Act Now! We need to keep the pressure on!

First DACA. Now TPS. Trump Widens Deportation Net.

Caving once again to the demands of white supremacists in the White House, the Trump administration revoked the legal status of 2,500 Nicaraguan Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders. The decision, effective January 5, 2019, follows the termination earlier this year of TPS for Sudanese nationals, effective November 2018. A decision for 57,000 Honduran TPS holders was deferred, automatically triggering a six month extension. A decision on 50,000 Haitian TPS holders is due this Thanksgiving, but the administration has already signaled its intent to terminate. Tennessee is home to more than 3,400 people with TPS, mainly from El Salvador, Haiti, and Honduras.
