NYC councillor in Montreal to gather information for Haitian asylum seekers fleeing U.S.

A New York City councillor spoke at Montreal’s Maison d’Haïti Tuesday about his search for answers on Canada’s immigration policy, so that he can then relay the information to Haitians living in the United States on temporary protection status (TPS).

Mathieu Eugène said people tell him daily that they’ve decided to seek asylum in Canada and that they believe it’s “the Promised Land.”

He said misinformation is spreading because Haitians living in Canada are in communication with those in the U.S. and are telling them they will be welcomed north of the border.
