Gov. Cuomo Pardons Seven Individuals
Governor Andrew Cuomo pardons seven people who had faced deportation because of crimes committed years ago. Cuomo announced the pardons on Monday, saying the state must protect its residents as the federal government wages what he calls an un-American assault on immigrants. The governor’s office says the seven people pardoned all turned their lives around following minor criminal convictions years ago. The list includes a mother of three, a grandfather and a man with cancer.
