ACLU So. Cal., Jan. 18, 2024

"Organizations representing noncitizen military veterans whose federal criminal convictions make them vulnerable to deportation are urging President Biden to use his pardon power to ensure people who have served our nation are not exiled from the only country they have ever known as home.  In a letter sent to Elizabeth Oyer, the Justice Department’s pardon attorney, the American Civil Liberties Union, Immigrant Defenders Law Center, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and partners highlight the critical service noncitizen veterans have provided to our country for centuries, the immigration consequences of criminal convictions for noncitizen veterans, and how presidential pardons will keep families together."
