U.S. Senators and Members of Congress Urge US Attorney General End of Federal Executions

Seventeen U.S. Senators and four Members of Congress who are leading the effort to abolish the federal death penalty have called on U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland (pictured) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to stop seeking the death penalty in pending and future federal murder trials. In separate letters sent to Garland on August 9, 2021, the chairs of both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, along with legislative sponsors of death-penalty repeal bills and numerous other Democratic legislative colleagues, urged the Attorney General to go beyond the limited freeze on executions he announced on July 1, 2021 by formally ending federal death penalty prosecutions. https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/news/senators-members-of-congress-urge-atto...
