Haiti: Day 3 Of TPS Trial-Haiti Expert Accused Of Bias

Brian Concannon, the executive director of the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti, was the last live witness for the plaintiffs in the Saget et al v Trump case that was called to the stand Wednesday as an expert on conditions on the Caribbean island.

His testimony will help determine if approximately 50,000 Haitian immigrants will get to keep their Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to work and live in the United States, or if they will get deported back to Haiti under President Donald Trump’s motion to terminate the designation for the recipients of the program.

Concannon has visited and lived on the island since the early 1990s and has knowledge of what Haiti was like before and after the 2010 earthquake, according to the executive director at the Eastern District of New York Federal Courthouse in Brooklyn on Jan. 9.
