SPRING VALLEY — State Sen. David Carlucci joined forces with the Haitian-American community to condemn President Donald Trump's alleged comments about Haitians, El Salvadorans, and people from African countries. Currently, there are over 2,500 people from Haiti under Temporary Protective Status living in Rockland County. Carlucci said that ending TPS sends the wrong message.

"That's something we feel we have to educate the president on," Carlucci said. "He doesn't really understand how this is a policy that's not only helping Haiti recover but grow our economy and make it an even better place to live."

When TPS ends, 60,000 Haitian immigrants will be forced to leave the United States.
