Extension and Redesignation of TPS for Haiti “Advances American Interests and Values”

Washington, DC — The following is a statement from Vanessa Cárdenas, Executive Director of America’s Voice, reacting to the Biden Administration’s announcement of the extension and redesignation of Temporary Protection Status (TPS) for Haiti.

“Today’s redesignation and extension of TPS for Haiti is a welcome development that advances American interests and values, keeps families together, and offers reminders of the dueling visions and larger stakes for this election across the nation. 

While one party is proposing to end TPS, deport people by the millions, and separate even deeply rooted immigrants, President Biden is making it clear that he prioritizes keeping families together with actions like this one on TPS.

We commend the Biden administration for today’s announcement and hope there will be no more deportation flights to Haiti. We want to uplift, honor, and thank the Haitian community leaders and organizations whose tireless advocacy made this moment possible.”
