Temporary protected status for Haitians

Haiti's government estimates that the country will need $11.5 billion to rebuild after the devastating earthquake in January. Although it's been a terrible tragedy it has also provided a rare opportunity for Haitians who are living in the United States illegally. The federal government is allowing undocumented Haitians to apply for temporary protected status � or TPS. It will allow them to get jobs and come out of the shadows. The World's Katy Clark recently met some Haitians in the Boston area who were applying for TPS.
