Children hold posters asking the U.S. Federal Government to renew Temporary Protected Status during a press conference about TPS for people from Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador. The conference took place at the office of the Haitian Women of Miami in the Little Haiti neighborhood on Nov. 6 in Miami, Florida.
