Obama Administration approved Haitian Family Reunification Parole program

Major policy shift announced by the Obama Administration toward Haitian Immigration in the US. On October 17, 2014, which is the day Haiti founding father Jean-Jacques Dessalines was assassinated in Pont Rouge, the Obama administration issued an executive Order approving the Haitian Family Reunification Parole program.


Beginning January 2015, U.S. Department of Homeland Security will implement a Haitian Family Reunification Parole (HFRP) Program to expedite family reunification for eligible Haitian family members. It is expected to cover over 5,000 Haitians currently living in Haiti.

Under this new Haitian Family Reunification Parole program, some people who have been waiting for years in Haiti will be allowed to travel and wait in the US instead for their legal status to be adjusted. While in the US, these people will be allowed to function and work legally.

Thousands of family members of U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are living in Haiti and have already been approved for a family-based immigrant visa will benefit from this policy shift.

Pawol pale, pawol Kompran

Ayisyen frèm yo, nou fè yon de pwin. Gouvenman Obama-a decide pou li ede kek moun ki te ape tan papye yo an Ayiti pou yo vini viv Ozetazini. Dapre yon lod ke li apen pase, a pati de Janvye, 2015, anpil moun ke paran yo te fill rezidans pou yo et ki tape tan rezidans sa en Ayiti, ape kapab vini Ozetazini pou yo vini tan papye yo.

Anplis de sa, pandan ke moun sa yo ape tan papye yo isit, yape gin dwa pou yo travay legalman tankoy tout moun.

Yo deja fè yon estimasyon ke plis ke 5,000 moun kapab benefisye de lwa sa.
