#THREAD 1) Stories about how recent #HWH closures are impacting federal prisoners & their families are still pouring into our offices
2) We've learned of postponed release dates, reduction of #HWH time, and people being placed at #HWHs far from their homes
3) Last week, @Reuters covered the issue and helped spread news of this issue all over the nation! #HWH #cjreform reuters.com/article/us-usa…
4) The #BOP has stated that the #HWH closures impact just 1% of available beds, but the stories we’re hearing
5) suggest the problem is much more widespread. Even prior to the recent closures, the #BOP didn't have enough #HWH space to meet demand.
6) In the meantime, we'll continue to put a human face to this and so many #cjreform issues by sharing the stories of the impacted. Pls RT:
7a) "I went from going home in 3 mos, back up to 9 mos. You can imagine I was highly upset..." #HWH
7b) "I have been gone over 8 years. My wife and kids were also upset because they were expecting me for Christmas." #HWH
8a) "This is a problem for several people that I know. And it does not help that the courts do not distinguish..." #HWH
8b) "...one form of '#incarceration' from another, leaving half-way-house/home confinement completely in the hands of the #BOP. #HWH
9) "I am not getting #HWH time, only home confinement. They say they don't have room."
10a) “I can speak for many good men that are incarcerated here with me that we need to be able to get as much #HWH time as possible.”
10b) “6 mos isn't enough to get on our feet. I am #blessed w. a beautiful family that I need to get out & provide for as soon as possible”
10c) "I am fully able to contribute positively to society & pay for my family & not be a burden on society. Please do whatever you..."
10d) "...can to get the #BOP to change its archaic policies of keeping us locked up far longer than necessary." #HWH #cjreform
11a) "New release date bc of unavailability of #HWH is 6 mos later. They won't release me on home confinement or re-submit me to another..."
11b) "...#HWH, even though I have a stable & safe home to go to and a job waiting upon my release." #cjreform
11c) "I’ve maintained clear conduct and an exceptional institution record during my 8-1/2 years of incarceration." #HWH #cjreform
