News Americas, MIAMI, FL, Weds. Nov. 22, 2017: Some 60,000 Haitian immigrants were on Monday told to prepare to get out by July 22, 2019 or find a way to adjust their status in the US as the Donald Trump administration announced it was officially ending the Temporary Protected Status, (TPS), designation for Haiti.

But while many slammed the move and planned protests outside Mar-Lar-Go Tuesday, Haitians for Trump, a group of Haitian-Americans who supported the Republican candidate over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general elections, was thanking the President on Twitter.

“Thank you @realDonaldTrump for the extension of #TPS for the Haitians. Make Haiti Great Again,” the group tweeted late Monday night, following the November 20th announcement by Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Elaine Duke.

Duke, in a statement said the “decision to terminate TPS for Haiti was made after a review of the conditions upon which the country’s original designation was based.”

She added that “based on all available information, including recommendations received as part of an inter-agency consultation process” she has “determined that those extraordinary but temporary conditions caused by the 2010 earthquake no longer exist.”

“Thus, under the applicable statute, the current TPS designation must be terminated,” the statement added.

The group, which states in its profile on Twitter that “President Donald J. Trump appreciates the Haitian-American community across America,” has since the election taken to retweeting Trump’s anti-Hillary Clinton rants on its page and tweets from Melania Trump, Kellyanne Conway and even right wing controversial talk show host, Rush Limbaugh.

Haitians for Trump has been less active on its Facebook page. The group was founded in 2016 and says it is “a movement of Haitian-American citizens” who were committed to electing Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States.
