DOJ Overtly Attempts to Undermine President Trump's Prison Reform Agenda

Over the past several months, there has a been a campaign against the FIRST STEP Act, H.R. 5682, waged by a handful of reactionaries whose mindset is better suited for the 1980s. It has been suspected, although not confirmed, that the talking points against the bill were coming from the Department of Justice (DOJ). We now know this to be an indisputable fact.

Ways and Means Republicans Demand Answers from DOJ on Refusal to Return Wrongfully Seized Money

Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee want to know why the Department of Justice (DOJ) has denied petitions by Americans whose money was seized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The seized money was subject to federal civil asset forfeiture hearings in which the individual from whom the money was taken had to prove that it wasn’t connected to any wrongdoing.

Key Vote NO on the SITSA Act, H.R. 2851

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on the Stop the Importation and Trafficking of Synthetic Analogues (SITSA) Act, H.R. 2851. This bill would attempt to address the very real synthetic opioid problem in the United States but does so in an extremely misguided way.

The FIRST STEP Act: Reducing Recidivism Through ID Clarification

Last week, the FIRST STEP Act, federal prison reform legislation sponsored by Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), sailed through the House by a vote of 360-59. The bill would create a risk and needs assessment in federal prisons to guide the implementation of incentivised recidivism-reduction programming for prisoners. More broadly, the legislation is focused on reducing recidivism by aiding reentry into society in multiple ways and implements other measures that contribute to this goal outside of the new programming provisions.
