Those 24,000 residents have lived here an average of 13 years each and have conceived more than 10,000 American children. "There is no place in Haiti for them to be". "The idea is to whiten America", Dupuy said from his Brooklyn studio.

"This is unfair to a country that has been going through so much, a political, social and economic situation", Dupuy said.
"Mr. President, please suspend this order", she said. The difference he said, is that deportation has gotten chaotic and random. "But if you came into the country because you want to have a better life and you want to help your family and you want to help the country where you are, the United States, you don't deserve to be deported", he said. About 300,000 people are now living in the USA with TPS, and the countries now designated for its protections, according to the DHS website, are El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. TPS now is granted to recipients from 13 foreign countries.
Among them was U.S. Representative Nydia Velazquez, a Democrat who introduced legislation that would protect from deportation immigrants who have TPS and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED), another program subject to presidential discretion that was extended by Obama but is due to expire in March 2018.
Haitians received TPS in 2010 after a 7.0-magnitude natural disaster shook the country, killing 220,000 people.
More than 300,000 people from El Salvador, Honduras, and Haiti live in the United States with TPS. "Significant steps have been taken to improve the stability and quality of life for Haitian citizens, and Haiti is able to safely receive traditional levels of returned citizens".

Many Rockland County politicians, including State Senator David Carlucci, Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee, and legislators Toney L. Earl, Nancy Low-Hogan and Aney Paul, are calling for federal officials to reconsider President Donald Trump's decision to end a protection status that would force almost 60,000 Haitians living in the U.S.to return home. Individuals who are already in the U.S. from the designated countries are eligible and are then protected from deportation.
Approximately 46,000 Haitians were allowed to enter the US and work without fear of deportation, according to the Pew Research Center.
But TPS holders are generally unassimilated and uncompetitive in the USA economy, and their departure from the labor market will increase pressure on US companies to raise Americans' wages and to invest in more labor-saving machinery.
The decision to not extend the TPS status is required by law, said a senior administration official. "I grew up here", she said.
Forry said government officials should realize that TPS beneficiaries entered the country legally and are paying taxes.
In addition, the decision, announced on Monday by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), puts into limbo the fate of tens of thousands of children born to the Haitians in the U.S., giving them legal resident status. "This our country", said Mythra Abraham, a Hollywood resident from Haiti.
Centro Presente, a Boston-based Latin American advocacy organization, called Trump's decision to terminate the Haiti program "ill-advised and cruel". For Haitians with TPS, it means leaving the USA on their own or facing deportation if they have not left by the deadline.
The Trump administration on Monday announced thousands of Haitians seeking refuge in the USA must return to their poverty-stricken homeland.
