Trump Gives Liberians One Year To Leave United States

The United States President, Donald Trump has given thousands of Liberian migrants to the U.S, who have been living in America since the 1991 civil war, one year of grace to leave the United States.

The President, in a letter to the Department of Homeland Security, stated that he would accord the Liberians a 12-month “wind-down” period to prepare their departure.

He wrote, “Through consultation with appropriate executive departments and agencies and my advisors, I have been informed that conditions in Liberia have improved.

“Liberia is no longer experiencing armed conflict and has made significant progress in restoring stability and democratic governance,” he argued.

While admitting that the 2014 outbreak of the Ebola virus in West Africa had brought “tragic loss of lives and economic damage” to Liberia, he expressed satisfaction with the progress made by the country in tackling the disease.
