Help HAITI Act of 2010 Sunset Date (December 9, 2013)

The last day for families of children who entered the US on Humanitarian Parole following the earthquake to begin their path to citizenship under the auspices of the Help Haiti Act is fast approaching.  Any HP family who has not completed their child's citizenship process should do so immediately to protect their child's rights to citizenship!

The following is a message from the Department of Homeland Security:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invites you to participate in a stakeholder teleconference on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern) to discuss the upcoming sunset date for the Help HAITI Act of 2010 and provide families of paroled Haitian orphans with information about filing for lawful permanent resident (LPR) status.

On December 9, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Help Haitian Adoptees Immediately to Integrate Act of 2010 (Help HAITI Act of 2010). This law made it possible for certain Haitian orphans paroled into the United States to become LPRs and obtain Green Cards. The Help HAITI ACT adjustment of status provision expires Monday, December 9, 2013.

For more information on the Help HAITI Act, please visit the Green Card Through the Help HAITI Act of 2010 page on www.uscis.gov.
