Here's a thread with the profiles of some of the political prisoners the Maduro administration sent home last night — Get an idea of who can be considered a threat by the Venezuelan government. https://t.co/gbtuKl10NW
“Imposed prosecutor general Tarek William Saab and chief justice Maikel Moreno announced that prosecutors and courts had been ordered to comply with the ANC’s decision and proceed to release a group of political prisoners with precautionary measures. I’m always willing to mention Saab’s huge syntax mistakes, which make him reveal truths, such as his tweet summarizing yesterday’s decision: “The truth commission (…) will continue reviewing the applicable cases, linked to the political violence that broke out in Venezuela in pursuit of national reconciliation and peace,” in other words, the prosecutor recognizes that the goal of protests was to achieve reconciliation. In any case, both did their best to show how the Executive Branch controls the public apparatus, without independence or autonomy.”

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, pardoned another Cuban immigrant for an armed robbery committed 19 years ago, in an effort to stave off his deportation. Rene Lima-Marin, 38, arrived as a toddler in the boatlift and 20 years later received a deportation order after his conviction.
Apart from the Mariel list, Cuba has agreed to review deportations on a case-by-case basis. Fifty-seven Cubans have been deported since October, while 335 were arrested between Jan. 22 and April 29.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announced a six-month extension of TPS for Haitians.
“This six-month extension should allow Haitian TPS recipients living in the United States time to attain travel documents and make other necessary arrangements for their ultimate departure from the United States, and should also provide the Haitian government with the time it needs to prepare for the future repatriation of all current TPS recipients,” Kelly said. “We plan to continue to work closely with the Haitian government, including assisting the government in proactively providing travel documents for its citizens.”
