The Trump administration late on Tuesday announced it would end a program allowing Liberian immigrants to live legally in the United States, due to “significant progress” in their country. The United States had allowed Liberian citizens to live and work under Deferred Enforcement Departure, which began in 2007 during President George W. Bush’s administration and was extended by President Barack Obama in 2016. The program accepted Liberian immigrants due to political conflict and the 2014 Ebola virus outbreak.
