BK Haitians worried about being ousted from U.S.
Brooklyn Haitians say they are worried about the their expiring Temporary Protected Status, more than a year removed from the massive earthquake that crippled their country.
After the disaster, the federal government allowed Haitians who could not return the opportunity to stay in Brooklyn and the rest of the United States.
However, Temporary Protected Status for Haiti expires in July. City Councilman Mathieu Eugene (D-District 40) has proposed Resolution 648, a bill urging the Department of Homeland Security to extend TPS. He says the government can't send Haitians back to a paralyzed nation that may require up to 10 years to rebuild.
