A representative of the Church of Scientology is among 20 signatories to a letter released Monday calling on President Donald Trump to reject changes to the FIRST STEP Act, the criminal justice bill currently pending in the Senate.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and Sen. John Kennedy (R., La.) announced today that several law enforcement and victims' rights groups support their amendment to criminal justice reform legislation known as the First Step Act.
Several major law enforcement groups, thought to have backed down on their opposition to a federal criminal justice reform proposal, issued a letter to Senate leaders Thursday outlining why they were still troubled by the bill.
