The Conservative Case for Criminal Justice Reform

At a recent Heritage Foundation event, Senator Mike Lee made the conservative case for criminal justice reform.

GOP Contenders Should Run on Ending Mass Incarceration

Agreement on big issues in Congress seems like a rarity, but there is growing support to address the crisis of mass incarceration from Republicans and Democrats alike. Even the GOP presidential contenders agree that the “war on drugs” has failed.
