President Trump has made reforming America’s criminal justice system a top priority. In 2018, he signed the bipartisan First Step Act, which is leading to fairer sentencing guidelines and helping more former inmates transition into the labor force.
Wednesday, the President welcomed Kim Kardashian West and Alice Marie Johnson to the Oval Office. Johnson, a great-grandmother, served nearly 22 years in federal prison for a first-time criminal offense before President Trump commuted her sentence in 2018. She and Kardashian West joined President Trump yesterday as he presented signed clemency documents to three mothers: Judith Negron, Crystal Munoz, and Tynice Nichole Hall.
Americans granted clemency or pardons by President Trump are selected based on factors such as excessive sentencing and progress in rehabilitation. President Trump is committed to providing a second chance to all Americans who pay their debt to society.
