Nothing like ending 2018 with a bang.
Yesterday, New York Governor Cuomo granted clemency to 29 convicts. Among them were four who were serving long sentences for murder.
Why? Because he seemingly wanted to send a message to President Trump.
In total, 22 inmates were pardoned. Nine more had sentences commuted. Four of those were sentences for murder and three were for armed robbery.
Among those who were given pardons were several immigrants who were facing possible deportation. Now they can be with their families, the governor said.
“These actions will help keep immigrant families together and take a critical step toward a more just, more fair and more compassionate New York.”
