Former Salvadoran General Will Likely Be Deported

By Kristen E. McCannon

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement moved to deport General Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova of El Salvador last week. The deportation is fueled by allegations that General Casanova participated in human rights abuses in El Salvador in the 1980s in violation of jus cogens. General Casanova retired to Florida in 1989 and is a legal U.S. resident.
