Gov’t Lets Liberians Stay in US Amid Ebola Crisis

Newsmax, September 26, 2014

Liberian immigrants living in the United States without a visa won’t be sent back to the epicenter of the Ebola crisis in West Africa for at least another two years, the Obama administration said Friday.

President Barack Obama signed a memo extending a legal protection called “deferred enforced departure” that continues a protection from deportation that has been in place for more than a decade.

The government first granted Liberians temporary protective status during that country’s bloody civil war, which started in 1991 and ended in 2003.

That original protection expired in October 2007. President George W. Bush then approved deferred enforced departure for the community.

Obama later approved the same protection and Friday renewed it again for two more years.

    But for White South Afrikans trying to escape from the world’s highest murder rate no such quarter is given by Barack O.

    Government Lets Ebola Stay in US Amid Ebola Crisis

    When did the immigration laws become a system for providing privileges and benefits to foreigners, rather than a tool for the protection of Americans?

      A law made for the benefit of Africans by an African.

    So moving right along, the global elite continues to build their vision of one world government and Obama is their ploy. Citizenship means nothing anymore.

    These criminals will never be deported.

    In Concord, NH they’ve added Rwandan refugees to the Somali refugees. The federal government hates us.

      Couldn’t happen to a better group of liberals than New Englanders.

        Except that New Hampshire really isn’t all that liberal. It’s not our fault if the Republican Party never gives us real conservatives, just neocon pod people.

        • Paleoconn

          I stand corrected. You are right, there are usually no alternatives in this rigged political system.

    Didn’t the Obama administration actively work to expell a White German Christian family who wanted to claim refugee status because Germany would not allow them to home school their children?

  • RHG

    Lets face it, no non-white is ever going back to their own countries. If anything this government will only add to their numbers, because it is bound and determined to make whites a minority.

    Next Week’s Headline: Obama Adminstration orders Navy to ready transport of four million at-risk Liberians back to their original homeland of the United States, silences critics of the rescue mission by calling them raciss. Lutherans everywhere applaud and offer Liberian males free use of their daughter’s bedrooms and everything located within in perpetuity.
