"The United States in July 2019 will end a special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants that protects them from deportation after a devastating 2010 earthquake, senior Trump administration officials said on Monday.
The decision by acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke gives Haitians 18 months to return to their impoverished Caribbean country or legalize their status in the United States.
Duke decided to terminate the special status after a U.S. review of the conditions in Haiti found the country had made considerable progress, a senior official with President Donald Trump's administration told a briefing." Which is a fat lie. Not a lot of the country has been rebuilt from the Earthquake and the hurricanes, including the country's largest hospital which is still is not completed. Our employment rate is low, (right now there are teachers on strike because they haven't been paid) and we have a cholera epidemic (which was introduced by the UN peacekeepers when they came for the earthquake). the island isn't ready for 60,000 people. For the commenters who would probably say "The Haitian people did this to themselves", look up the history of Haiti, and look up how much the US and France owes Haiti.
