Gavin Newsom pardons 7 felons, including 2 facing deportation

Gavin Newsom pardons 7 felons, including 2 facing deportation | 15 May 2019 | California Gov. Gavin Newsom, in an apparent rebuke of President Trump, used his executive authority to pardon two immigrants who went to prison after facing convictions -- including for soliciting to commit murder and grand theft. While his decision doesn't halt deportation proceedings, it removes the offense that prompted the decision to deport them. Newsom's office justified the decision as a way to help the pardoned -- many of whom were convicted before 2000 -- avoid "collateral consequences" of their convictions.
