Loretta Lynch: President Obama Can’t Pardon All The DREAMers

On Thursday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch sat down with Politico’s Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman to discuss her tenure and the incoming administration.

During the discussion, Lynch was asked if President Obama can pardon all the DREAMers to prevent deportation under a Trump administration.

“The issue of pardoning someone is an individual decision. That’s made on a case-by-case basis, and so there’s no legal framework or regulatory framework that allows for a pardon of a group,” Lynch told Sherman, in response to his question.
