“This is great news for Haitian migrants who continue to escape from the ongoing political crisis back home. We will always welcome the Biden administration’s efforts to utilize the TPS program in order to protect migrants and refugees who are in need of immediate relief. They have the legal, political, and moral authority to make this happen. These efforts must not end here. The Biden administration must also expand the same protections to Central Americans.”-Concepcion Morales, TPS Holder, Spokesperson for the National TPS Alliance
