Rubio Introduces Legislation to Provide Temporary Protected Status for Haitians

Jul 19, 2019 | Press Releases

Cape Canaveral, FL — This week, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced legislation to designate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for eligible Haitians currently residing in the United States. The bill would grant TPS for a period of 18 months beginning on July 22, 2019. 
 
Established by Congress through the Immigration Act of 1990, TPS is a temporary, renewable program that provides relief from deportation for foreign nationals from certain countries who are unable to safely return to their home country due to natural disasters, armed conflicts, or other extraordinary conditions.
 
“I am working with the administration and my colleagues in the Senate to extend TPS for eligible Haitians by 18 months,” Rubio said. “Ultimately I would like to see a permanent solution, but we have received some positive feedback from the administration on a temporary solution.”
 
Rubio is Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues.
