Trump wants to focus on hiring more former prisoners, boost rehabilitation efforts

President Trump said Monday he wants to follow up on criminal justice reform with efforts that help federal inmates find jobs after they leave prison. Congress passed legislation last year called the First Step Act that gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts. The effort drew strong support from Republicans and Democrats worried that mandatory minimum laws had generated unfair sentences in many drug-related cases.
