Jason Hernandez wrote an Op Ed that was published in Fusion on 1/15/2016 entitled Why hasn’t President Obama granted clemency to a single Latina inmate? about the lack of any Latinas receiving clemency from President Obama. Indeed, to date, there has not been a single Latina to receive mercy of the more than 20,000 applicants and 184 lucky recipients.
We are pleased that Josephine Ledezma #4 and Rita Becerra #10 on the CAN-DO Top 25 are Women Who Deserve Clemency are prominently featured in this Op Ed that urges President Obama to include more Latinas in his next batch of clemencies.
