First daughter Ivanka Trump reaffirms her support for the Trump Administration’s prison reform bill.
Ivanka stressed roughly 80% of imprisoned women have children, she said in a tweet today.
The first daughter suggested tough sentences for women could negatively affect American families.
President Trump endorsed the bipartisan First Step Act — which would offer relief to pregnant inmates, and ease sentences for women.
A separate report from the FBI finds women commit about 26% of all violent crime in the U.S.
Ivanka, for her part, emphasized what she calls a “restoration” of dignity for imprisoned women.
