US begins deportation of Liberians

"It is better to be deported to your country, rather than spending the rest of your life behind prison bars"

The United States on Wednesday deported over 20 Liberians after they successfully served their respective sentences for various crimes they committed in the States. Some of these deportees did not commit crimes however, some did not have the right document to stay as a permanent resident in the United States.

The deportees were received by the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) and then turned them over their relatives who signed for them.

They were transported from the Roberts International Airport in Margibi County in a BIN truck with police escort to the BIN headquarters in Monrovia.

They were mostly dressed in white T-shirt and carried their belongings in rice bags.

Persons been brought back to the west African country are classified as “undesirable” because they have committed various crimes or offenses. By the end of the exercise, between 100 and 200 will be deported, the BBC’s correspondent reports.

According to, Liberia’s ambassador to the US, Jeremiah Solunteh, disclosed that 53 of those to be deported have already “been processed” and are awaiting deportation.
