Liberians Fear Deportation with Looming DED Deadline Approaching

Hyattsville, MD – CASA, the Liberian Community Association Washington, DC Chapter, community activists, residents, and elected officials, will come together on Tuesday, March 26 at 10:30 a.m. to demand that President Trump extend the status for Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) holders before their statuses end on March 31.

We will call upon the White House to take immediate action to extend the stay of Liberians on DED, and similarly call upon the U.S. Congress to swiftly pass pending legislation to grant permanent legal status to Liberians and other immigrants with TPS(Temporary Protected Status) or DED(Deferred Enforced Departure ).  An estimated 350,000 Liberian immigrants reside in the U.S., 20,000 of whom reside in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

Who: CASA Executive Director Gustavo Torres; Liberian Community Association Washington Chapter President Lucy Wilson-Kear; Liberian leaders and community; and Frances Baysah, a nurse facing deportation after 30 years in the U.S.

What: Press Conference
When: Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at 10:30 a.m.Where: CASA Headquarters, 8151 15th Avenue, Hyattsville, MD
