The Reunite Haitian-American Families Campaign is an advocacy effort comprised of Haitian American and immigration advocates, human rights activist and community leaders. As of November 1, 2013 DHS had approved over 110,000 visas including 16,000 for minors. However, these potential visa recipients must remain on wait list for up to more than 12 years in Haiti, where many have died or are at risk given the cholera outbreak and other life-threatening conditions. The goal of the campaign is the creation of family reunification parole program similar to that of a program created for Cuban migrants. A parole program would allow the 110,000 Haitian visa recipients to wait for their permanent resident visas in the U.S rather than in Haiti.
We invite you to show your support for these Haitian-American families by having your organization endorse this campaign and ratify the need for the creation of a Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program.
