UPDATE 12/21/2021: The Justice Department withdrew and replaced a Trump-era memo that would have forced thousands of people on home confinement back to prison after COVID. We commend this decision for thousands of families and loved ones who now face less risk of being separated from each other. But the threat of an eventual return to prison is still lingering for some. We must continue to urge President Biden to use his clemency powers: Send your message now.
Since COVID-19 hit prisons, thousands of people incarcerated in federal facilities have been allowed to serve their sentences at home under the CARES Act. Many have gotten jobs and reunited with their families and communities. But many of these individuals may be sent back to prison.
Forcing people who have successfully re-entered society back to prison would be cruel, would not make anyone safer, and would waste taxpayer money. President Biden has the power to prevent this impending crisis by granting clemency to those serving sentences at home under the CARES Act right now. Tell him to act.
