Government Plans to Resume Haitian Removals

Today, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson announced that the government plans to resume regular deportations of Haitians. Secretary Johnson stated that Haitian nationals currently covered by Temporary Protected Status (TPS) will be unaffected by this policy change, and that the Haitian Family Reunification Parole program remains in effect. AILA expressed serious concerns that this decision could endanger asylum seekers and other vulnerable immigrants. Stated AILA Executive Director Ben Johnson in a press release, "The lack of transparency shrouding this announcement is alarming given the conditions that await those slated for removal. If the federal government believes conditions have improved in Haiti to such an extent as to justify this change in policy, tell us the facts and figures and prove that Haitians will not be deported back to an unsafe situation."
