USCIS has announced its intention to automatically extend employment authorization documents (EADs) for Liberian nationals covered under Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) through September 30, 2013. This automatic extension of EADs follows President Obama’s announcement of his decision to extend DED through September 30, 2014 for qualified Liberians and those persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia.

The six-month automatic extension of existing EADs will permit eligible Liberians to continue working in the United States while they file their applications for new EADs that will cover the full 18 months of the DED extension through September 30, 2014. However, certain individuals are ineligible for DED, including:

  • Liberians who did not have Temporary Protected Status on September 30, 2007, and are therefore not covered under current DED;
  • certain criminals;
  • persons subject to the mandatory bars to Temporary Protected Status; and
  • persons whose removal is in the interest of the United States.

USCIS has also informed that it will publish a notice in the Federal Register with information regarding the extension of the validity of EADs for Liberian nationals covered under DED, and instructions on how they may obtain employment authorization for the remainder of the DED extension.
