Though the struggle for a Haitian Family Reunification Parole has been ongoing for several years, The Reunite Haitian Families Campaign lifted the leadership and stories of those in the Haitian American community and these combined efforts resulted in the creation of the HFRP program, a win for thousands that have been awaiting relief! As announced, implementation for the program is underway and USCIS has announced a series of information session in key cities with large Haitian American communities.
Encourage continued outreach and engagement by signing the petition urging implementation and expansion and endorsing the campaign today. The support of advocates helps to ensure our communities will benefit from the program.
Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program(HFRP), information sessions will take place in Miami, New York and Boston. USCIS officials will provide an overview of the HFRP program and address questions about its implementation. Share these announcements widely, fliers available for download in this post.

The Wrong Help Can Hurt: Avoid HFRP Scams
The following notice is from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services:
On October 17, 2014, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a limited Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program to help unify families and promote safe, legal and orderly migration from Haiti. However, this program will not begin until early 2015.
Until then, we strongly urge Haitians who may want to apply under this program to be careful of immigration scams. Dishonest people may try to trick potential applicants and take their money by saying they will help them apply.
No one can apply for the program until it begins early next year. Those Haitians who will be eligible for consideration under the program will be contacted in writing with information on how to apply. We will post announcements on www.uscis.gov and inform the Haitian community when we start this program.
Please read our newest flier, available in English, French and Haitian Creole, about how to avoid immigration scams and share it with your friends and family members.
