The Wider Image: Liberians grapple with potential loss of U.S. legal status
Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) status holder Marie Zar closes the curtains at her apartment before she leaves for work the day after U.S. President Donald Trump granted a one-year extension of her immigration status, in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, U.S., March 29, 2019. Zar, who has been in the United States for nearly two decades, works in the healthcare industry - she is a nurse's assistant, who also picks up shifts at the local hospital as an interpreter for Liberian patients. The money she makes supports nearly two dozen family members in Liberia. She said her family's lives will be upended if her DED status ends. "My nieces are going to school from the money I make here," Zar said. "We don't know what's going to happen. We're not sure what's going to happen to us."
