PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) – Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton sent a letter to President Donald Trump this week urging a reconsideration of the president’s decision to end Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Liberian-Americans.
An estimated 14,000 Liberians in Minnesota face an uncertain future. Under Deferred Enforced Departure, there is no path to legal status or citizenship, meaning Minnesota’s Liberian community is always looking over their shoulder at the next deadline. The DED program for Liberia was renewed by President George W. Bush and twice by President Obama.
