Obama Grants Haitians Temporary Protected Status
Some good news. The Obama Administration has decided, at least temporarily, to grant Temporary Protected Status to Haitians illegally in the U.S.
The protection is only available to Haitians already in the country as of last Tuesday, and allows them to stay and work for 18 months.
[Homeland Security Director Janet]Napolitano told reporters that the temporary legal status is an act of compassion....Temporary protected status is granted to foreigners who may not be able to return safely to their country because of a natural disaster, armed conflict or other reasons.
The ruling could affect 100,000 to 200,000 Haitians in the U.S.
