Immigration officials got the word out Sunday about the renewal of federal immigration protections for Haitians who live in the United States.
Attorney Dennis Bradley said he represents many Haitian nationals who live in the Greater Bridgeport area.
He said the Biden Administration has reauthorized Temporary Protective Status for them. The window to enroll will expire March 23.
"Haitian Americans often meet this criteria because of natural and political disasters that are happening currently in Haiti. So if you're a Haitian-American, you don't have to live in the shadows, you can come forward, apply for Temporary Protective Status and get the help and relief you need. It allows people to have the decency of jobs and the opportunity to progress here in this country while they're looking for refuge," Bradly said.
He said similar programs have been offered for people from other countries as well.
