The Obama administration is extending temporary protected status for Haitians who fled to the United States following last year's earthquake.
The move will allow them to stay in the country for an additional 18 months.
The temporary status was originally granted in January of 2010, just days after Haiti was hit with a massive quake. However, it would have expired in July.
The extension will allow those who are eligible to stay in the U.S. through the end of January 2013.
It also extends the program to Haitians who have been living in the U.S. since January 12, 2011.

Wow! This is really surprising! I am shocked Obama would do this! Where did this come from? Who could have predicted such a thing?!!!!
Where is his compassion? He’s allowing them to stay basically just thru election day, and then send them back home.
This is all part of the plan to mint as many new Dem voters as possible before Obama is thrown out in 2012.
