She has worked a variety of jobs caring for the elderly, after she lost her home in Haiti in the 2010 earthquake. The U.S. administration said Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, it is ending a temporary residency permit program that has allowed almost 60,000 citizens from Haiti to live and work in the United States since a powerful earthquake shook the Caribbean nation in 2010. The Homeland Security Department said the benefit will be extended one last time — until July 2019 — to give Haitians time to prepare to return home. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
