Late this evening we finally got the good news that thousands of Liberians with Temporary protected status, which was set to expire on the 31 of march have been granted a 12 months extension. Temporary protected status is an immigration status given to nationals of countries or parts of countries that are deemed by the U.S. government to be too unsafe for nationals to return. That status can be granted for reasons like an armed conflict or environmental disaster.
President Barack Obama has signed an executive order allowing Liberians living in the United States to stay in the country for an additional 12 months.
U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, and Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar who has been among the congressional leaders on this issue, confirmed this afternoon that an extension of the March 31 deadline was granted for those Liberians living in the United States on a temporary immigration status.
We applaud the Presidents decision, to help our countrymen, and we thank all the members of congress who stood by and continue to stand by our side when it comes to all the relevant issues in our community.
GOD, Country, Family, service before self.............

Liberia In the 60s
The Lone Star forever
The national song
When freedom raised her glowing form on Montserrado's verdant height, She set within the doom of night, 'midst low ring stars and thunderstorms the star of liberty - and seizing from the waking morn, its burnished shield of golden flame she lifted in her proud name and raise a people long forlorn to noble destiny The Lone Star forever! The Lone Star forever! O long may it float over land and over sea. Desert it, no never! Uphold it, forever! O shout for the Lone Star banner, All hail.
