Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement after the Trump administration announced it would extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti.

“For almost a decade, the people of Haiti have suffered at the hands of Mother Nature. First wreaked by a destructive 2008 hurricane season, a catastrophic earthquake in 2010 killed hundreds of thousands of people and leveled many parts of the country. Countless Haitians living in the United States, including those in the 25th district, have benefited from Temporary Protected Status. I thank President Trump and DHS Secretary Kelly for this TPS extension and I support the people of Haiti as they continue to rebuild.”
