NDLON Denounces Decision to Terminate TPS for Haiti

Los Angeles, CA – On Monday, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) was terminated for over 50,000 Haitian nationals who have been living in the United States for nearly a decade.

In response, Pablo Alvarado, Director of NDLON issued the following statement:

“This politically craven move is the latest attack in President Trump’s overall war of attrition against nonwhite migrants. It appears to us that the President is creating a crisis to in order to compel Congressional action as part of a hostage-style negotiating strategy. It is now up to members of Congress to do the right thing. They should support legislation that offers permanent residency to TPS holders living and working in the United States. Over the next 18 months, we pledge to stand along side any Haitians who are fighting for the right to remain in their new homes within the United States.”
