On March 15, 2013, President Obama extended the grant of “deferred enforced departure” (DED) for Liberians for an additional 18 months beginning March 31.

Because of the civil strife in Liberia, temporary protected status (TPS) was granted to Liberians in 1991. The armed conflict ended in 2003 and TPS was ended in 2007. But DED was granted to those originally granted TPS. This grant was set to expire March 31, 2013, but has now been extended.

Based on this grant, employment authorization will be extended for the additional 18-month period.
