‘Squad’ members rip Trump death-penalty ‘carnage,’ urge Biden to commute killers’ sentences

All 49 remaining death-row inmates in federal prisons should have their sentences commuted by President Biden, two members of the progressive “Squad” group of Democrats urged Friday.

The demand by U.S. Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Cori Bush, D-Mo., came in a letter sent to Biden that was also signed by 35 other Democrats, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

It was a reaction to the Trump administration’s revival of federal executions after a nearly two-decade hiatus that resulted in 13 executions carried out in the final months of former President Donald Trump’s term in office.
