Given 18 months to leave the U.S., Haitians granted special status are shocked and disappointed, but also relieved

Wednesday 08:07 GMT

On Monday night that announcement finally came, with the Department of Homeland Security saying that 59,000 Haitian immigrants with “temporary protected status” can stay in the country until July 2019, but then must leave the country.

Haitians were first given the protections after the earthquake of January 2010, which killed more than 300,000 people, displaced more than 1.5 million and sparked a cholera epidemic.
