US 50,000 Haitian residents, by the Thanksgiving holiday later this month

A letter from the United States Department of State could pave the way for deporting 50,000 Haitian residents, by the Thanksgiving holiday later this month, enjoying a reprieve from certain immigration rules that were waived after the 2010 earthquake, according to reports here.

The ruling that conditions have improved enough in Haiti and in Central America to resume normal immigration rules in those regions comes days before the Department of Homeland Security is expected to announce whether to renew the special status, according to the Washington Post.

The Miami Herald reports that political leaders in Miami-Dade, Florida -- home to the largest concentration of Haitians protected by the special status, known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), have urged President Donald Trump to continue the waiver.

But the paper quickly added that the State Department decision could be a prelude to that status being lifted.

More than 300,000 Central Americans and Haitians living in the United States under a form of temporary permission no longer need to be shielded from deportation, the State Department told Homeland Security officials, the Post reported.
