Second Day of the Continued Removal Hearing of General García

General Garcia took the witness stand in his own defense to the charges that he is removable from the United States because he “ordered, incited, assisted or otherwise participated in torture and extra-judicial killing.” Garcia testified that he had entered the Salvadoran Military Academy directly from High School, graduated from the Academy in 1956 with the highest honors for his class (in El Salvador referred to as his “tanda.”) and then spent the next 40 years in military service.
