Immigration: TPS Status Granted to Haitians in US

According to NewsWeek,"In the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, pressure is intensifying on the Obama administration to grant temporary protected status (TPS) to undocumented Haitians living in the U.S. TPS, which is aimed at illegal immigrants who cannot return home safely due to natural and man-made disasters, would allow an estimated 30,000 Haitians to remain in the country for a defined period of time-most likely 12 to 18 months-and obtain work permits." * Update: Napolitano has granted TPS for Haitians in the US since January 12, 2010.
