Summary of the Immigration Court Decision in the Removal Case of Former General Jose Guillermo Garcia-Merino

Judge Horn’s opinion, like that of Judge Grim who presided over the removal proceeding of former General and Minister of Defense Eugenio Vides-Casanova, is a collection of some of the most heinous crimes committed in El Salvador in the 1980s. In a hard-hitting and powerful decision, J. Horn held former General Garcia responsible for these crimes as the Minister of Defense.
