Introduction: ‘Relief for Haiti’ March
Gregory Toussaint, CEO of Shekinah.fm and senior pastor of Tabernacle of Glory, has announced the ‘Relief for Haiti’ march, scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 9. The march aims to bring together thousands of participants across the U.S., including all 50 states, as well as individuals from Haiti, Canada, and France. Its purpose is to raise awareness about the mounting insecurity in Haiti, which the United Nations has recently classified as being “comparable to a nation at war.”
Advocating for Change: Legislative Support and Humanitarian Parole
Gregory Toussaint, emphasizing the significance of the ‘Relief for Haiti’ march, expressed the goal of mobilizing compassionate individuals in the U.S. and overseas to advocate for legislation that can bring relief to the Haitian people both in their homeland and abroad. He specifically urged the U.S. Congress to pass the Haiti Criminal Collusion Transparency Act of 2023 (Senate Bill S.396, House Bill H.R.1684). This act is a powerful instrument designed to uncover and penalize individuals within Haiti’s influential circles who clandestinely support criminal gangs.
Additionally, Toussaint is advocating for the Biden Administration to maintain the current humanitarian parole program for Haitians under the Department of Homeland Security’s processes. This program allows nationals of Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela, as well as their immediate family members, to request entry to the United States in a safe and orderly manner. The program’s legality is being challenged in court by several states, and its viability will be determined in an upcoming trial.
