This is commendable and also an interesting development because it means that the pro-immigration community is essentially saying that it is necessary to allow one group to receive an important immigration benefit out of lockstep with comprehensive immigration reform. Of course, the circumstances are extreme and allowing Haitians in the US - those here legally and illegally - the ability to stay and work here in order to help their country on its long road to recovery is crucial.
Incidentally, the anti-immigrants at FAIR issued an interesting press release today showing their great humanity. They want to grant TPS to Haitians. But for every Haitian who is allowed to stay, someone else here on TPS needs to be deported. Lovely people.
