• Last Minute Plea to Obama

    Ten members of the New York City Council wrote a letter to President Barack Obama requesting that he pardons Rabbi Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin. The letter comes just hours before the president finishes his presidency • Full Letter

    Statement from Council member CM Deutsch:

    Yesterday, President Barack Obama announced that he had commutated the sentences of 209 individuals and pardoned 64 others. I was dismayed to see that Sholom Rubashkin’s name was not among those issued clemency.

    In response, I prepared a letter with several of my colleagues to the President as a last ditch effort to ask for his compassion for Mr. Rubashkin, a 51 year old father of ten children who was sentenced to 27 years in prison.

    Mr. Rubashkin has already served seven years for his non-violent offenses.

    In April of 2016, 107 officials signed a letter to the US Attorney in support of Mr. Rubashkin’s motion to vacate his sentence. These signatories included six former United States Attorney Generals, federal judges, and other Department of Justice officials.

    I sent my letter to President Obama, Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, the US Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, and the White House Counsel to the President.

    I believe that Mr. Rubashkin deserves to be freed. If you agree, get involved by calling the White House at 202-456-1414 or email President Obama at https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact.
