Advance Copy of Liberian DED Extension Notice

"On March 15, 2013, President Obama issued a memorandum to the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano directing her to extend for an additional 18 months the deferred enforced departure (DED) of certain Liberians and to provide for work authorization during that period.  The DED extension runs from April 1, 2013, through September 30, 2014.  This notice provides instructions for eligible Liberians on how to apply for the full 18-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 18-month DED period." - FR Doc. 2013-06519 Filed 03/20/2013 at 8:45 am; Publication Date: 03/21/2013.
