Firday Haiti Special w/ Guest Host Kevin Pina

Today on Flashpoints: The department of homeland security’s current 18-month designation of Haiti for temporary protected status(TPS) expires on July 22nd will affect 58,000 Haitians who arrived in the US prior to January 12, 2011, one year after the earthquake. The Trump administration is signaling it will not renew TPS which will trigger their forced repatriation back to Haiti. Then, we look at the ongoing moves of PHTL ruling clique in Haiti to restore the once dreaded Haitian military. Finally, we talk with a Haitian political analyst about the current situation there.
