Default Trump hosts discussion on prison reform, reducing recidivism

Trump hosts discussion on prison reform, reducing recidivism

"President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions hosted a listening session at the White House on prison reform, as the administration considers how to reduce the rate of reoffending criminals.

"We have a great interest in helping them turn their lives around," Mr. Trump said.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics claims 68 percent of state offenders — representing the majority of those incarcerated in the U.S. — are rearrested within three years, and 77 percent are rearrested within five years. Part of the administration's goal is to save federal tax dollars, as the U.S. spends billions of taxpayer dollars at the federal, state and local level to incarcerate people.

"We will be very tough on crime, but we will provide a ladder of opportunity for the future," Mr. Trump said. "

Trump and Kushner's Prison Reform Plan Not Expected to Reduce Sentences or Fix Prison Conditions

...to include politicians and religious and nonprofit leaders from the right. It is not expected to include discussion on topics like prison conditions or sentencing reform.

FAMM was cautiously optimistic anyway.

It WOULD be cool if conservatives could at least agree that discrimination by employers makes it hard for ex-cons to reintegrate, so that more should be done to break down barriers to post-incarceration employment.

But somehow I suspect Kushner's sudden interest in "prison reform" has more to do with his own pending legal problems than any real interest in addressing the fundamentals of what really needs fixing...

"We will be very tough on crime, but we will provide a ladder of opportunity for the future," Mr. Trump said. " Another catch 22 by Trump. I don't believe a word that comes out of his mouth until proven.
