The Trump administration is reportedly ending the program that has allowed nearly 60,000 Haitians to live and work in the United States since a devastating earthquake ravaged the country in 2010. According to The Boston Globe, Haitians who currently have temporary protected status will be expected to leave the states by July 2019 or face deportation. Meanwhile, Haiti is still struggling to put its pieces back together and “relies heavily on money its expatriates send to relatives back home,” The Globe reports.

Called The Great Migration Home Movie Project, the service allows people to have their home movies digitized by the museum’s audiovisual conservation team in the Robert F.

“Media conservators will facilitate free digitization of motion picture film (16mm, Super 8, and Regular 8mm), obsolete videotape formats (Hi-8/8mm, MiniDV, 3/4″ U-matic, VHS, Betacam, 1″ open reel video, and 1/2″ open reel video) and various audio formats,” their website explains.
