I just received this email from Diana Boni, who is a strong supporter of Haitian children and their rights. Diana wrote:
Your phone calls, emails, letters, lobbying, and refusal to allow our children’s RIGHT to a prompt and direct path to American citizenship worked. The Help Haiti Act passed the House today.
I will update you on exactly what this means and how we will implement citizenship appointments, social security numbers for those states that won’t issue them without citizenship, and other news as soon as it becomes available.
Thank you to the many of you who were determined enough to speak up for the Help Haiti Act.
