DOJ Releases IJ Ruling Calling for Removal of Salvadoran General Vides Casanova

"This week, in response to a lawsuit filed by The New York Times and Julia Preston, the Department of Justice released the ruling of an immigration judge stating that Salvadoran Defense Minister Vides Casanova is subject to removal from the United States due to his participation in the torture of Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA) clients Dr. Juan Romagoza and Daniel Alvarado, among many other civilians, and for assisting or otherwise participating in the 1980 extrajudicial killing of the four American churchwomen and the 1981 Sheraton Hotel killings of two Americans and a Salvadoran land reform leader." - CJA, Apr. 11, 2013.
