The Haitian earthquake disaster has prompted lawmakers to consider granting Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to Haitians in the United States, so that those Haitians without status in the U.S. can live and work here while their home country deals with the disaster. Florida Republicans Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen are pressing the Obama administration to speedily grant TPS relief. Meanwhile, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano have halted all deportations to Haiti.
Livesay & Myers, P.C. continues to monitor the government’s reaction to the earthquake and will post TPS-related updates as they become available.
