During his 2019 State of The Union Address, President Trump spoke on how America can begin to remediate on the harmful effects faced by nonviolent offenders. With this idea, president Trump spoke on introducing the First Step Act. He said that, “The First Step Act gives nonviolent offenders the chance to reenter society as productive, law-abiding citizens. Now, states across the country are following our lead. America is a nation that believes in redemption.” As the act’s name suggests, this is a major step towards a new form of justice.
