Liberia: Immigration Officers Put On Alert

The Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) has put all of its officers assigned at the Liberian-Ivorian border posts on alert.

The BIN has mandated immigration officers on the Special Joint Security Operations at the borders to remain posted and protect the borders of Liberia.

The directive, according to BIN, is part of the entity's statutory duties to administer and regulate the Alien and Nationality Laws of Liberia.

According to a release, BIN said the mandate is in conformity with the 1976 amended Act which makes the entity the first line of defense, which is in concurrence with the doctrine of border management and security.

BIN reassured its officers assigned at border posts of its support aimed at providing the needed logistics.

The Bureau called on all migrants to observe the mandate and regulations of the Government of Liberia regarding the protection of the country's borders.
