Legal Help for Haitians Seeking Temporary Status in the U.S.

If you live in or around the New York area and are Haitian seeking temporary status, or know some one who is, The New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) has compiled a list of legal resources for Haitians considering Temporary Protected Status (TPS), including upcoming legal clinics for Haitians seeking TPS (both in NYC and upstate), nonprofit immigration legal service organizations and community-based organizations providing social services. The list is on the NYIC website direct link here (if that does not work try the website here and look for Haitian TPS link)

Other helpful numbers:

  • Legal Aid Society has a TPS Hotline for Haitian nationals. Call: 1-888-284-2772. (info is free and includes help with paper work, referrals, and advocacy)

There has been a lot of fraud and price per service gauging of the Haitian refugee community as a result of people exploiting the recent earthquake crisis. Please pass this information along, &/or post it, so that Haitians can access their immigration amnesty without any more trauma or abuse.
