Yes we can. Yes we did. Thank you for being a part of the past eight years.
“At its heart, America is a nation of second chances.” With 209 commutations and 64 pardons, President Obama just gave 273 deserving Americans a second chance. With 1,385 total commutations over the last eight years, the President has now granted more commutations than any president in our nation’s history.
