Nov 13 - President Trump to announce support for criminal justice overhaul proposal
 

 
President Donald Trump is expected to throw his support behind bipartisan criminal justice legislation during an event at the White House on Wednesday, two sources close to the process said.

Trump is scheduled to announce on Wednesday that he is supporting the latest iteration of the First Step Act, a bill that his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, has been working to craft and build support for alongside a bipartisan group of senators, the sources said. The President will be joined by supporters of the legislation during the White House event, the sources said.
Supporters of the measure expect that Trump's explicit backing will help propel the prison and sentencing overhaul bill through Congress, a push White House officials hope to accomplish during the lame duck session of Congress.
The President has wavered on whether to throw his support behind the bill in recent months, but the sources said he was swayed to back the bill on Tuesday after meeting with Kushner.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to order a whip count later this week, and has pledged to bring the bill to the floor for a vote if the count shows 60 votes in favor of the bill.
Trump's support came after several law enforcement a*sociations announced their backing for the legislation.
The National District Attorneys a*sociation, which represents 2,500 district attorneys and 40,000 a*sistant district attorneys, became the latest law enforcement organization to support the bill, according to a letter the group's president addressed to Trump.
"This legislation is a bipartisan effort to address front-end sentencing reform and back-end prison reform, and our a*sociation is appreciative of your efforts to partner with the Nation's prosecutors on this important matter," a*sociation President Jonathan Blodgett wrote in the letter, obtained by CNN.
The prosecutors' a*sociation's support for the legislation came on the heels of backing from several other law enforcement organizations, including the Fraternal Order of Police, International a*sociation of Chiefs of Police, Law Enforcement Leaders to Reduce Crime and Incarceration and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, which also penned a letter of support to Trump.
The Major Cities Chiefs a*sociation and Major County Sheriffs of America also withdrew their opposition to the legislation, writing in a letter to Kushner dated Tuesday that they "endorse the objectives of the First Step Act" and the legislation "strengthens how Federal prisoners may be integrated into the community and set on a path to live positive and productive lives." Less than two weeks ago, the groups wrote to Kushner to say they could not back the bill.
Opposition from since-ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, in particular, served as key stumbling blocks to advancing the legislation, with both touting opposition within law enforcement circles -- an argument that is quickly fading as groups back the proposal.
Sources close to the process said the support from law enforcement a*sociations is key to advancing the measure and securing the President's full-throated support.
Proponents of the bill made several changes to it to win backing from law enforcement groups, including stiffer sentencing guidelines for fentanyl-related offenses and a compromise provision to modestly expand the definition of a serious violent crime.
Now the question is whether enough Democrats will rally to support the compromise package or hold out for a more ambitious overhaul of the nation's sentencing laws.
Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, who had announced his opposition to a previous version of the bill because he felt it did not go far enough, said Tuesday that he is still looking to get more changes to the bill.

So what? If he “put his support” for it why does that still bother you? Who cares if he helps it pass ? In the end it still passes. It would actually be a step forward for the change and help people you want to have helped right? Who cares how it gets done as long as it gets done.

Watered-down sh*t. Doesn't help the majority of inmates and doesn't address the system that results in American having the largest incarceration rates in the world. Shouldn't even be titled criminal justice reform.

If he’s serious about an overhaul. Marijuana needs to reclassified nationally and people in prison for low level/non-violent marijuana linked “crime” need to be released immediately. Let’s really make an impact here, fu*k this grand-standing bullsh*t. Let’s work towards fixing the obviously broken system.

My point was it’s about time. Should have been voted on months ago but the senate was too scared.

Even on something as super basic as this bill, which really does very little.

I wish they would create a bill that would make a police department and an individual officer responsible for misconduct rather than tax payers having to foot the bills. Also keep police unions out of investigations and allow for a separate impartial DA to investigate the case.

this urban legend tiki talking point refuses to die

if Tiki changes cannabis laws, he will splinter his base and almost certainly doom his chance for reelection

evangelicals and white nationalists will not tolerate a safe way to ease suffering and losing the prime tool to oppress non-whites

people who don't like Tiki will not be swayed by legalizing cannabis and Tiki will be left with a fraction of his supporters who don't really know what to do other than vote party

if Tiki's base can be scared sh*tless by the idea of poverty-stricken people hundreds and hundreds of miles away looking for a better life, imagine the terror at society having a source of relaxation and non-addictive pain relief that can't be patented and can be grown at home
