The article informs that advocates to stop the deportation of more than 24 dozen Montserratian nationals from the U.S. are now calling on U.S. President George W. Bush to grant those affected deferred enforced departure. The temporary protected status of the 292 ran out on February 27, but many still remain here. Now, Vera Weekes, the chief lobbyist for the group, says DED will enable a smooth transition out of the USA for those who could not adjust their status. Deferred enforced departure is similar to temporary protected status and is a humanitarian designation to delay the deportation of groups of individuals who would otherwise be placed in danger should they be deported to countries where there is instability for political or other reasons, according to U.S. immigration laws.
