Paul Minor’s emergency request to Holder

Attached please find an emergency furlough request I sent Attorney General Holder late yesterday. The Justice Department acknowledged receipt of the letter Friday evening. The letter requests the Department for an emergency furlough in light of the Fifth Circuit’s recent Order.
(See attached Order).

As recognized by the Fifth Circuit, Paul Minor is entitled to a furlough to be with his wife Sylvia in her last days.

The Department should provide its full support for this request first of because it’s the right, decent and compassionate thing to do.
