Why We Voted for Obama: Administration Offers 18-Month Status to Illegal Haitians in US

01/15/2010 10:09 PM |

Hey look, a fair, generous, common sense decision from a presidential administration! Janet Napolitano announced earlier today that Haitians living in America as of Tuesday’s earthquake will be given 18-month special status, allowing them to work (and theoretically help out relatives back home). This decision will effect the roughly 130,000 Haitians currently living without status in America.

It’s a funny feeling when the American president does something not totally evil good.

Stand-by for right-wing outrage… (Though to be fair, some Republicans supported this decision, and will now be deemed RINOs by the conservative base.)
