Almost undocumented, Liberians in US get 11th hour reprieve


Up to 4,000 Liberians with Deferred Enforced Departure status were nearly rendered undocumented March 31, after US President Donald Trump declined to renew their status last year. But at the 11th hour, the White House reversed course. But there is still no permanent solution set for DED holders, many of whom have US-citizen family members.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton traveled to Liberia to support President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Africa's only female president.

How hard is it to elect a female head of state? Liberians made it look easy.
