From: leonie hermantin <email@example.com>
RALLY & MARCH SATURDAY APRIL 22 FOR EQUAL TREATMENT FOR HAITIANS!
Gather at 54th Street and North Miami Avenue at 2 pm & March to 79th & Biscayne
TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS (TPS) AND WORK PERMITS FOR HAITIANS NOW!
STOP DEPORTATIONS TO HAITI!
Nationals of seven countries currently enjoy Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
in the United States: Nicaraguans, Hondurans, Salvadorans, Burundis, Somalis,
Liberians, and Sudanese Ė but not Haitians! TPS halts all deportations and
grants work permits to all nationals of countries so designated. But Haitians
have never received TPS and continue to be deported to Haiti despite conditions
We are glad for Cubans and for the Central Americans who have TPS and cannot be
deported. They are our brothers and sisters! But it is immoral and wrong to
deport Haitians despite the catastrophic natural disasters, devastating
economic conditions, brutal human rights abuses, political paralysis, endemic
violence, institutional failures and meltdown, and massive unemployment and
poverty in Haiti!
Grant Haitians TPS! These deportations destroy our families, devastate our
community, cut off remittances which sustain hundreds of thousands in Haiti,
and discriminate against Haitians!
Our elected political leaders will LISTEN when we demonstrate and march!
Gather Saturday, April 22 at 2 pm at 28 NE 54th Street and march to the DHS
building at 79th and Biscayne Boulevard!
Stand up and come out this Saturday April 22! Donít be left out! Celebrate
with thousands of Haitian brothers and sisters and bring your family and
friends! Raise your voice to demand: Stop Haiti Deportations! TPS and work
permits for Haitians! Equal Treatment for Haitians Now!
