Thanks to President Trump, black Americans are making historic progress and enjoying growing opportunities. #DemDebate
President Trump recently announced that historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) with religious affiliations “will no longer be restricted from accessing federal funding.”
President Trump also signed the historic #FirstStepAct into law, which undid much of the damage from the Biden crime bill and created a “fairer justice system for all and enacted programs to reduce recidivism and make our communities safer.”

Celebrating historic prison reform that press and Democrats have managed to not discuss #FirstStepAct 🇺🇸
Oh that’s right he’s racist, totally forgot. Prison reform doesn’t fit that narrative too well but you do you Dems because everyone is walking away😉
What’s so confusing is @RepCummings pure hate for Kushner, who tirelessly worked to make #FirstStepAct a reality. Are you jealous Elijah?

In anticipation of the State of the Union #SOTU Address (1/10):

1. This was a missed opportunity to to demote the #SOTU, which has devolved into a useless, monarchical spectacle. Should have mailed it in.
In anticipation of the State of the Union #SOTU Address (2/10):

2. With the #FirstStepAct, @realDonaldTrump can tout a genuine, bipartisan, compassionate conservatism policy victory that enhances true civil justice & human flourishing. Will be great to see Matthew Charles there.
In anticipation of the State of the Union #SOTU Address (3/10):

3. Trump's tax reform has been a resounding success. CBO says tax cuts raised economic growth and job creation above the expected baseline, and got 20% revenue feedback.

Let’s be very clear, “taking a knee” is a protest against police killing of unarmed African Americans. Nothing in the recently passed #FirstStepAct says a word abt this. In fact the Trump Admin. decided that DOJ will no longer investigate unconstitutional policing practices.
Trump did not “take care if that.” Instead he celebrated rough treatment by police (“don’t be too nice”), allowed his DOJ to abandon investigations of systemic police brutality and misconduct, and pardoned a law enforcement ofcr (Sheriff Arpaio)engaged in racist, illegal conduct.
His AG even tried to scuttle a consemt decree entered into by the State of IL & the Chicago PD after that PD was sued by the state for unconstitutional policing. Just last week, a federal judge approved the consent decree (and ignored the Trump Admin’s attempted interference).

US Sentencing Commission put out this FAQ on the #FirstStepAct, thanks @SLandP #cjreform ussc.gov/sites/default/…
Also this revised impact analysis for #FirstSteoAct, again, thanks @SLandP ussc.gov/sites/default/…
This seems to be pretty strong evidence that the #FirstStepAct will positively impact racial disparities 1) Fair Sentencing Act retroactivity

Voted tonight for the #FirstStepAct, the bipartisan criminal justice reform bill that just passed the Senate.
While this measure is not a cure-all for the problems that plague our criminal justice system, this is an overdue step to improve a system that still imprisons too many people – particularly people of color – for committing nonviolent crimes.
Instead, this bill will allow law enforcement to redirect taxpayer resources toward catching and punishing dangerous and violent criminals.

Thursday was a rough day for @realDonaldTrump --who needs new WH Counsel, tough, credentialed AG ASAP-- and for @SenateGOP, dysfunction over judicial nominees b/c of @JeffFlake and tied up on verge of approving a base-enraging #FirstStepAct.
The @SenateGOP thus is on the verge of getting exactly wrong their message from voters in winning a bigger Senate majority which was: Confirm more judges, stay tough on crime and national security; combat fentanyl outbreak, border issues like human trafficking.
The @SenateGOP will be haunted by #FirstStepAct for many cycles as early release for dealers/sex criminals becomes a recurring headline, and @JeffFlake is, astonishingly, going to make cruelty/indifference to originalist judicial nominees define his leaving and thus his tenure.

Thread:

An easy breakdown of why Tom Cotton is not only WRONG but Dangerously WRONG on the #FirstStepAct

1. The act is modeled after state reform that reduced recidivism. IE He is PREVENTING a bill that REDUCES crime and INCREASES public safety pewtrusts.org/en/research-an…
2. Mr. Cotton likes to use scare-tactics, he says the #FirstStepAct will let "SCARY PEOPLE OUT"

But, these people will GET OUT ANYWAY, the question is HOW not IF they will return. Mr. Cotton is supporting "scary people" returning With NO programming nationalreview.com/2018/11/the-tr…
3. In fact, for the people Mr. Cotton likes to fear-monger the most - remaining in prison WITHOUT PROGRAMMING is an INCUBATOR for RECIDIVISM. Again, Mr. Cotton is arguing, in essence, for MORE crime not less when he opposes the #FirstStepAct on these grounds

For years, our bipartisan group in @senjudiciary has been working on legislation to improve our criminal justice system. #FirstStepAct
We've agreed on ways to reform our counterproductive & costly sentencing practices & to adopt proven strategies for rehabilitating inmates to help them become productive members of society.
Our bill incorporates valuable lessons from states like #RhodeIsland, which are seeing real benefits of reform in lower numbers of repeat offenders, less criminal justice spending, and safer communities.
