Haiti: Permanent Residence, a hope for Haitians benefiting from the TPS

The Embassy of Haiti in Washington DC informs us that the Democrats Deputies presented to the US House of Representatives the “Dream and Promise Act.” which aims to open a way to obtain permanent residence for more than 50,000 Haitian nationals who are beneficiaries of the Protected Temporary Status (TPS) and to several million holders of the Deferred Enforced Departure (DED).

HR.6 was introduced by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ms. Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, Rep. Nydia M. Velazquez, Rep. Yvette Clarke and the other Democrats.

The Embassy states that “If the Act is passed,” TPS recipients will be able to immediately apply for the green card, provided that the applicant has resided in the country for at least three years, that it has obtained temporary status since September 2016, and that it has successfully passed the step of verifying its antecedents. Finally, 5 years after obtaining the green card, the people concerned will be able to apply for citizenship.
