SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Extension of Employment Authorization and EADs This notice announces an 18month automatic extension of employment authorization and Employment Authorization Documents for Liberians (and persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia) who have been provided Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) in accordance with the Memorandum from President George W. Bush, to Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, dated September 12, 2007. In addition, this notice informs the affected Liberians and their employers, or prospective employers, that a copy of SUMMARY: this notice presented in conjunction with an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) expiring on September 30, 2007, that was previously issued to the person as a beneficiary of Temporary Protected Status (TPS), may be accepted as evidence of a covered individual’s continued employment authorization through March 31, 2009. This notice further informs Liberians covered by DED and their employers how they may determine which EADs are automatically extended. Finally, this notice provides instructions for those Liberians who have been provided DED and who would like to apply for permission to travel outside the United States during the 18-month DED period. DATES: The 18-month automatic extension of employment authorization for Liberians who are eligible for DED, including the extension of their EADs, as specified in this notice, is effective as of 12:01 a.m. October 1, 2007. This automatic extension will expire on March 31, 2009.

Who is eligible for an 18-month automatic extension of employment authorization through March 31, 2009? The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is granting an 18-month extension of employment authorization and the EADs specified in this notice to Liberians who are provided DED in accordance with President Bush’s Memorandum to Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, dated September 12, 2007 (‘‘Presidential Memorandum’’). As described in that Presidential Memorandum, such individuals who are nationals of Liberia PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (or persons having no nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia) who have TPS status as of September 30, 2007. In accordance with his constitutional authority to conduct the foreign relations of the United States, the President has directed that such Liberians, who are eligible as described in the Presidential Memorandum, be provided DED for an 18 month period after their TPS status ends. In addition, the President directed Secretary Chertoff and DHS to implement the necessary steps to authorize employment for 18 months from October 1, 2007, for Liberians (and persons without nationality who last resided in Liberia) who are eligible for DED in accordance with the Presidential Memorandum. If TPS for an individual was withdrawn or denied as of September 30, 2007, he or she will not be eligible to receive DED or the automatic extension of employment authorization. Which EADs are automatically extended to March 31, 2009? This automatic extension is limited to EADs issued to Liberians (or persons without nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia) on Form I–766, Employment Authorization Document, bearing an expiration date of September 30, 2007. These EADs must also bear the notation ‘‘A–12’’ or ‘‘C–19’’ on the face of the card under ‘‘Category.’’ These are the same EADs issued in conjunction with the individual’s TPS status that terminates as of 12:01 a.m. October 1, 2007 (71 FR 55000 (September 20, 2006)). How may employers determine whether an EAD has been automatically extended for 18 months through March 31, 2009, and is therefore acceptable for completion of the Form I–9? A Form I–766 (EAD) issued to a Liberian national (or person with no nationality who last habitually resided in Liberia) bearing the notation ‘‘A–12’’ or ‘‘C–19’’ on the face of the card under ‘‘Category,’’ and having an expiration date of September 30, 2007, on the face of the card, is acceptable for completion of the Form I–9. This notice provides an 18 month automatic extension of such EADs until March 31, 2009. Employers should not request proof of Liberian citizenship. Employers should accept an EAD as a valid ‘‘List A’’ document and not ask for additional Form I–9, Employment Eligibility Verification, documentation if presented with an EAD that has been extended pursuant to this Federal Register Notice, and the EAD reasonably appears on its face to be genuine and to relate to the employee.
