WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Dean Phillips (MN-03) issued the following statement on President Trump signing a one year extension of Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) status for Liberians.


“This is excellent news, and I am thrilled for our Liberian community. They are our family and deserve admiration for their relentless fight for this DED extension.
