Secretary of Homeland Security announced a new 18-month designation of Haiti for Temporary Protected Status (TPS), enabling Haitian nationals and individuals without nationality who are currently residing in the United States as of May 21, 2021, to file initial applications for TPS as long as they meet eligibility requirements.

The State Department just helped make it a bit easier for US citizens who used reproductive technology, including same sex marriage, to confer US citizenship to his or her child born while abroad.
