U.S. May Grant Undocumented Haitians Legal Status

The Department of Homeland Security could grant legal status to undocumented Haitians in the United States in the wake of that country's devastating earthquake, a top U.S. official said. "We are aware of the devastation and loss that the people of Haiti are suffering," Alejandro Mayorkas, the chief of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said Thursday in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "We are considering all alternatives available to us in extending a helping hand to Haiti," Mayorkas said. He confirmed those considerations include temporary protected status for Haitians.
