TPS for Haitians set to terminate July 2019

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Boston - On November 20, 2017, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that it will terminate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians on July 22, 2019. Prior to yesterday’s decision, TPS was originally set to end on January 22, 2018.

Catholic Charities of Boston strongly opposes this decision. As an organization that proudly serves the Haitian population in Boston, we recognize their many contributions to our community, as well as the reasons they should not be forced to return to their native country.
