Jean Montrevil, the immigrant activist and former U.S. permanent resident who was abruptly deported to Haiti in 2018, has been given three years of deferred action that will allow him to remain in the United States to pursue a path to permanent status. This comes as a result of a settlement in his First Amendment lawsuit against the U.S. government. Montrevil argued federal immigration officials targeted him for his activism, including his criticism of the Trump administration’s policies toward Haiti. We’ll speak with Jean Montrevil and his lawyer on Monday. Click here to see more than a decade of our interviews with Jean.
