Nadler Comments on President Biden’s Plan to Increase Opportunity for Formerly Incarcerated Persons

Washington, April 26, 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler today issued the following statement after President Biden unveiled a comprehensive plan to expand opportunities for formerly incarcerated persons:
“The United States has always believed in the dignity and fairness of second chances. President Biden’s bold plan to expand our investment in formerly incarcerated persons will provide a second chance to incarcerated Americans who seek to better themselves and contribute to their communities. Successful reentry programs are critical to breaking the cycle of crime in our communities and providing economic security to thousands of formerly incarcerated people. I commend President Biden and Vice President Harris for putting forward this comprehensive reentry plan.”
