TPS recipients will have to achieve legal status or return to Haiti by July 2019 ― or risk deportation.
Haitian TPS recipients have been living in the U.S. for 13 years on average

The Trump administration has ended immigration protections for thousands of Haitians in the U.S. starting in 18 months, which will force many to abandon the lives and communities they’ve built to return to a country still recovering from disaster.

It's gonna take able-bodies to do the repair/rebuilding.
Hoping they attain some skills so as to build better infrastructure.
I remember some of the pics showing the devastation;
it appeared they built cinder-block walls sideways rather than atop each other where rebar could've been used more effectively, if at all.
Someone should educate them before they rebuild using bunk plans.

That's a good point. People in North America don't seem to flee to another country when disaster strikes.
I agree. Haiti has been a pit of corruption for a very long time. I guess the people who aren't fortunate enough to get out must like it like that.
Abandoning their homes to live in our disgusting inner cities is not a solution to their problems at home.
