When we say hire American, We Mean “ALL AMERICAN” – PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP

 

 

President Trump is working hard to help former inmates get training, get jobs, get hope and opportunity.

 

 

    • Many of the reforms included in this legislation passed the House in an overwhelming, bipartisan vote of 360–59 in May 2018.
    • Republicans and Democrats in the Senate worked with the White House to craft a bipartisan sentencing reform compromise, which has been added to the legislation.
    • So far, seven major police organizations, more than 2,700 faith and evangelical leaders, and hundreds of conservative organizations and leaders support this legislation.

    • The FIRST STEP Act uses a targeted approach toward a specific population of Federal prisoners who will eventually be released.
    • Prisoners will be able to earn credits that reduce the amount of time spent in prison.
    • As a result, prisoners will gain job skills, drug treatment, and education that prepare them to reenter American communities as productive members of society.
    • The legislation also seeks to place Federal inmates closer to their communities in order to facilitate family visitation.
    • The legislation reduces the enhanced penalties for certain non-violent repeat drug offenders and eliminates the three-strike mandatory life provision.
    • Certain nonviolent offenders will be able to petition courts for a review of their sentence, which can be reduced only after the judge reviews all circumstances, including public safety, criminal history, and the nature of the offense.

    • More than 95% of these prisoners will eventually leave prison and face the challenge of restarting and reintegrating their lives.
