Please call your Congressman and state…..

Please ask the Congressman to take a public stance against the removal of Temporary Protected Status for Haitians and urge the Trump administration not to force the return of tens of thousands of Haitians to Haiti.

After calling please send an email to your Congressman (clicking on the name above) with the following (or a personal version of it) with the drop down menu topic “Immigration” (if he has a drop down menu) and the subject line “Haitian TPS”:

Congressman,

As a constituent, I urge you to ask DHS Secretary Kelly to extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians for at least another 18 months. Current conditions in Haiti – such as food insecurity and hunger, the cholera epidemic, and economic instability – exacerbated by Hurricane Matthew – make it unsafe for anyone to be deported to Haiti. Haitians are fleeing catastrophic conditions and should be allowed to remain in the United States.

Please take a public stance against the removal of Haitian Temporary Protected Status and urge the Trump administration not to return tens of thousands of Haitians to Haiti as the head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is recommending.

Thank You,

Your Name

(Remember to change Your Name to your name.)
