Liberians from Minnesota talk to CNN about possible deportation

by Nelima

As things stand, come March 31st thousands of Liberians currently under Deferred Enforced Departure (D.E.D) will be required to go back home. Right now Liberians have organized themselves and are petitioning for an extension of their status and hopefully permanent residency for others. Read previous article on TPS/DED posted here. Minnesota has the highest number of Liberians on D.E.D and thus the campaign has been very busy here. The organizers of the campaign need more people affected by D.E.D to tell their story while the rest of us support our African brothers and sisters. Plans are underway for a march to the capitol so watch this space. Meanwhile watch the videos as featured today on CNN.

  1. Check as Liberians consolidate their efforts to stay. Watch out for more stories. Like I have said in previous discussions, it is highly unlikely that the DED will not be extended. Obama is expected to make some immigration announcements this month, will keep you updated.
