Two weeks ago, Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti hard; its devastating effects are still being counted. Already vulnerable following the 2010 earthquake, Haiti has faced and is facing food insecurity, the loss of homes, and the displacement of many, among other challenges.
In addition to the devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew, thousands of Haitians are also suffering here in the United States as a result of recent changes to U.S. immigration policy. Please join us in taking action for just policy toward Haitian immigrants today.
The Ignatian Solidarity Network is joining the call of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States in calling on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Johnson to stop detaining and start protecting Haitians! Join us!
Specifically, our call to action DHS to:
- Restore U.S. policy that allows Haitians to seek refuge by granting humanitarian parole.
- Allow all Haitians already in the United States to stay and remain safe as the country recovers by re-designating Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to include all Haitians.
- Expand the Haitian family reunification program to ensure families are kept together.
Stand in solidarity with our Haitian brothers and sisters today!
