With President Barack Obama in the midst of a historic three-day trip to Cuba, Senator Joe Pennacchio urged the President to save some room on Air Force One for the flight home for a special guest:

Joanne Chesimard is wanted for escaping from prison in Clinton, New Jersey, while serving a life sentence for murdering a New Jersey State Trooper. She relocated to Cuba in 1984, where she is thought to still be living. (FBI)

“Cuba has been harboring convicted cop-killer Joanne Chesimard for more than 30 years.

“The people of New Jersey demand justice for her murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster.

“Air Force One is a big plane, and President Obama should save a seat to bring Joanne Chesimard home from Cuba.”

Pennacchio is the sponsor of SR-11, a New Jersey Senate resolution urging Cuba to extradidte Chesimard to the United States.
