Click here for 1-18-17 Letter to DHS on Colombian Paramilitaries

Representatives Mark Pocan, James P. McGovern, Barbara Lee, and Henry “Hank” Johnson, Jr urge Congress members to consider actions that will allow Colombian Paramilitary leaders to be held accountable for their role in the Colombian Conflict and take on their role in the Colombian Peace Process. This letter urges for the removal of protectional classification of Colombian paramilitary leaders who have been detained in the US only for drug charges and instead urges for their return to Colombia. In Colombia, these paramilitary leaders are subject to serve charges of grave crimes including forced disappearances and murder in Colombia.
