Trump agency wants to end temporary protection for 50,000 Haitians in U.S.

President Trump's immigration agency is recommending that the U.S. end temporary protections by next January for 50,000 Haitians allowed to remain in the United States following a series of natural disasters that have crippled the poverty-stricken Caribbean nation.

James McCament, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, concluded in a letter last week that conditions in Haiti have improved enough to end "temporary protected status" for Haitians, according to a copy of the letter obtained by USA TODAY.

The Obama administration first offered temporary protection to Haitians following the devastating 2010 earthquake. The protection has been extended several times, the latest set to expire July 22. McCament proposed an extension to January to allow for a "period of orderly transition" but said the program should not be extended beyond then.

. . .

The recommendation upset Republican and Democratic members of Congress who have pleaded with Kelly to extend the protections. Last month, 10 lawmakers from Florida, where many Haitians reside, wrote to Kerry outlining recent disasters that have slammed Haiti.

is to begin systematically removing any foreign POC out of the country before going full Hitler by planning to eliminate all POC.

4. It's the manufacture of the "boogyman"

to distract from one's own failings and designed to instill fear and anger against someone else to gain votes.
