It has come to my attention that the Texas Governor's Office has not
been reviewing transfer cases for over a year now, my source who
works with the Texas legislations has informed me.
The source states as follows: "that no transfer requests are being
reviewed since the Governor doesn't have to be included in the
decision process anyway. It appears like Canada and the U.S. Dept. of
Justice can make the decision themselves."
Since that is the case, then let's try something. Can you email
William Graham, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Serge [Boudreau,
Manager, International Transfers, Correctional Service Canada] of the
information. Also email the Governor of Texas for confirmation on
this and then contact (email) Maureen Killion at the U.S. Dept. of
Justice on this very same issue.
The first one I would like to try for in getting transfer approval
for is Susan Lynne Hey #835712, 2305 Ransom Road, Gatesville, Tx
76528. She has the best opportunity for transfer [to Canada] because
on February 04, 2002 Serge posted a letter to the Texas D.O.C.
requesting information as per letter enclosed.
