Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

Our letter supports a campaign by the American Civil Liberties Union. It asks President Biden to grant clemency to the people released to home confinement under the CARES ACT to reduce the number of COVID infections in prisons.

The
Bureau of Prisons completed a comprehensive assessment of each prisoner before s/he became eligible for home confinement..

We will send your email message to President Biden and Vice President Harris
.

President Biden, please grant clemency to the people released to home confinement under the CARES Act who successfully complied with their strict conditions of release. Alternatively, extend the order releasing them.
 
As a condition of release, the Bureau of Prisons vetted prisoners before moving them to home confinement, determining that each one was “low risk.” Ninety-nine percent of them satisfied their placement terms. Many obtained employment and reunited with family and communities.
 
The national emergency order ends on January 16, 2022. Those people are at risk of returning to federal prison.
 
On the campaign trail, you promised to reduce the federal prison population. Please begin with the people released by the CARES Act who successfully complied with their release conditions.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
