The Senate passed a bill that includes a measure giving Liberians facing deportation a path to citizenship.

Thousands of Liberians came to the U.S. in the 1990’s under temporary protections, and were a part of the Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) program starting in 2007. DED does not allow a path to citizenship, and expired in March 2019 without being renewed. The administration gave a one-year reprieve, meaning that thousands of Liberians would be subject to deportation after March 31, 2020. On Tuesday, the Senate passed the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, which included an amendment providing a path to citizenship for Liberians under DED status. President Trump has said he will sign the bill into law.
