The founder of Universal Human Rights International, Torli Krua, has announced a tour of three northern U.S. states to create awareness on the plight of Liberian refugees in America.
Contrary to rumors circulating on social media, U.S. President Donald Trump’s proposal to extend Temporary Protective Status or TPS for current beneficiaries by three years is unlikely to help many U.S.-based Liberians in immigration limbo.
The president of the Universal Human Rights International, Torli Krua, is calling on President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to issue an executive order granting visa waivers to thousands of Liberians in the diaspora, to facilitate their return to the country to invest into the economic.
In January 2006, after the swearing-in of Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf—the first woman elected to be president of any African country—the hope of many Liberians after years of civil turmoil was anchored to her education; experience; international leverages; and political, economic and social ability.
On Monday, Michelle Obama, with daughters Malia and Sasha in tow, touches down in Liberia for a day. The US first lady will not set foot in the capital, her two public events will be at a school in Unification Town and at the Peace Corps training facility in Kakata. No sooner will the Obama’s have arrived and they will be on their way to Morocco.
This Memorial Day weekend, we in America honor those who tragically lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks as well as the thousands of American citizens killed serving in the conflicts that followed.
The co-founder of The Bush Chicken, Torli Krua, who was instrumental in lobbying with congressmen and policymakers in the United States to increase the quota of refugees from Africa, has been recognized for his humanitarian work.
