Donald Trump, the President of United States, has given thousands of Liberians migrants to the U.S, who have been living in American since the 1991 civil war, one year of grace to leave the United States.
Trump, in a letter to the Department of Homeland Security, stated that he would accord the Liberians a 12-months “wind-down” period to prepare their departure.
He also 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 out break 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 tacking the disease.
