The Manhattan District Attorney's Office and Borough President Scott Stringer have announced a program designed to help Haitians who were in the U.S. illegally before the Jan. 12 earthquake by qualifying them for temporary protective status to enable them to remain and work in the U.S. for 18 months. Lawyers from the DA's office, the Legal Aid Society, the New York chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and other groups will provide the free advice.
