Urgent Action Update: Thirteen Federal Executions in Six Months (USA: UA 26.20)

January 21, 2021

Three people, including one woman, were executed in the last week of the Trump administration, bringing the total number of federal executions carried out in the last six months to 13. The cases of those executed were tainted by arbitrariness, ineffective legal representation, racial bias, and involved people with severe mental and intellectual disabilities, in violation of international law and standards.
