Haitians rally for protective status in Palm Beach

Haitians rally for protective status in West Palm Beach

Downtown West Palm Beach was recently filled with Haitians calling for an extension of Temporary Protective Status granted by the federal government.

A program giving Haitians temporary protective status was put in place after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

People rallied on Sapodilla Ave. between Banyan Boulevard and Clematis Street Thursday to call for President Trump to extend the program set to end on July 22..

The rally was organized by local Haitian radio station WPOM.

WPOM called on people from Miami up to the Treasure Coast to show their support for the president extending the program.

People chanted “yes to TPS” and “Haitians for Trump” at the rally.

The Trump administration must decide whether to renew the program for another 18 months.
