Today DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that the Temporary Protected Status program established for Haitians after the devastating earthquake in 2010 has been extended. Details are on the jump (click on the title of this post). This is certainly good news because the country is still struggling to recover, so it would make little sense to further burden the already scarce resources by sending people back there at this time .
I was a participating attorney in some volunteer TPS clinics prior to the last deadline. I look forward to volunteering again in the months to come.
