Guv Cuomo Grants Pardons To 7 Facing Deportation

(Albany, NY)  --  Governor Cuomo is  granting pardons to seven people who were at-risk for deportation  because of minor criminal convictions.  

t's the third time the governor  has pardoned people who were about to be deported.  Cuomo says he took  into account people's behavior after their convictions as well as the  service they've given back to their communities.  Most of the seven  people pardoned had previously been convicted of possession or sale of a  controlled substance.
