President Donald Trump announced last week that the United States would end Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Liberian nationals, giving them 12 months to leave the U.S. or obtain another legal basis to remain in the country.
BAL Analysis: The administration’s decision to end DED for Liberians is consistent with the steps it has taken to end temporary immigration protections for nationals of a number of countries. The U.S. has ended TPS protections for several countries, including El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan. The end of DED will have a similar impact for affected Liberians now living in the U.S. DHS has begun accepting applications for employment authorization for Liberian DED beneficiaries. Those who wish to work in the United States past Sept. 30, 2018, should file a Form I-765 as soon as possible.
