(St. Paul, MN) — Governor Tim Walz is still trying to win relief for a woman who challenged the Minnesota Board of Pardons. The board has a rule that requires that pardon applications must be unanimously approved by the three-person panel. Governor Walz has asked federal immigration officials to stop deportation proceedings against Amreya Shefa. She failed to get a pardon for her 2014 manslaughter conviction for killing her husband in what she calls an act of self-defense.
