Give Haitian refugees "Temporary Protective Status"

Subject: Tell Obama: Give Haitian refugees "Temporary Protective Status"

Dear Friend,

President Obama must order the Department of Homeland Security immediately grant Temporary Protected Status to undocumented Haitians in the U.S. This will give them protection from forcible deportation to Haiti, allow them to work legally, and start the long and difficult process of healing their families and communities. To refuse to do so would be irresponsible and immoral.

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is granted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to eligible nationals of countries that cannot safely return to their homelands because of armed conflict, environmental disaster, or other extraordinary and temporary conditions.

If any situation called for Temporary Protected Status, it is the current devastation in our hemisphere's poorest nation. I just signed a petition to ask President Obama to grant Temporary Protected Status to Haitian refugees in the U.S. I hope you will, too. Please have a look and take action.
