Temporary Immigration Is Available For Haitians In The U.S.

Disciples Home MissionsDisciples Home Missions’ Refugee and Immigration Ministries program has prepared information to help Haitians in the United States understand the new Temporary Protected Status (TPS) that is now available to many of them. TPS is an immigration status that is available to many Haitians who were already in the United States when the earthquake struck Haiti.

This information about TPS has been prepared to help Disciples Haitians and Disciples congregations working with Haitians in their community better understand TPS and the complicated nature of applying for TPS, but it is not meant to replace the advice of a competent legal representative. The English version of the information is now available and a French translation will be available soon at: www.discipleshomemissions.org/RIM/index.htm.
