                              THE WHITE HOUSE

                       Office of the Press Secretary

_______________________________________________________________________
For Immediate Release: September 28, 2000


                        STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

Today, I directed the Attorney General and the Immigration and Naturalization Service 
to defer for one year from September 29 the deportation of certain Liberians who are 
present in the United States on that date.  This action is aimed at promoting stability 
in Liberia and West Africa.  In particular, I am concerned that a decision by our 
government to deport Liberians who have enjoyed the protection of our country for 
many years could cause the involuntary repatriation of many thousands of Liberian 
refugees from other nations in West Africa.  This would severely burden Liberia and 
cause instability in Liberia and in the region.  I understand that Congress is actively 
considering a legislative fix for this problem, and I would welcome any solution that 
would provide relief for Liberians with long-standing ties to the United States.
