MIAMI, FL â€“ Today, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) issued the following statement concerning the announcement by the Department of Homeland Security to grant an 18 month extension for Temporary Protected Status (TPS), for Haitians living in the United States, beginning January 22, 2013. â€œThe extension of Temporary Protected Status is yet another lifeline for tens of thousands of Haitians living in the U.S., especially South Florida. I applaud the decision by Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security. This is the right thing to do given theÂ post-earthquake conditions that still exist in Haiti,â€ says Congresswoman Wilson.

A quartet of Republican women toured South Florida on Monday to sing the praises of Mitt Romney. They said a Romney presidency would be good for women - and for men. "Mitt Romney understands the issues for women and all Americans," said U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams, R-Orlando. "It's so important that we come together and ... take 10 of our friends to the polls. Get them to take 10 of their friends to the polls. And before you know it, we will make sure that Mitt Romney will be the next president of the United States."
