Advance Copy of Liberian DED Extension Instructions

"On September 26, 2014, President Obama issued a memorandum to the Secretary of Homeland Security (“Secretary”), Jeh Charles Johnson, directing him to extend for an additional 24 months the deferred enforced departure (DED) of certain Liberians and to provide for work authorization during that period. The DED extension runs from October 1, 2014, through September 30, 2016. This Notice provides instructions for eligible Liberians on how to apply for the full 24 month extension of employment authorization. Finally, this Notice provides instructions for DED-eligible Liberians on how to apply for permission to travel outside the United States during the 24 month DED period." - FR Doc. 2014-23507 Filed 09/30/2014 at 8:45 am; Publication Date: 10/01/2014.
