Trump announces Second Step Act to help ex-prisoners find work

President Trump announced plans Monday for a Second Step Act focused on easing employment barriers for formerly incarcerated people.

“We are proving we’re a nation that believes in redemption,” Trump said at a White House event celebrating people released under the First Step Act, which he signed in December.

Trump said the “second step” legislation will feature a $88 million funding request for prisoner social reentry programs.
“Today, I’m announcing that the Second Step Act will be focused on successful reentry and reduced unemployment for Americans with past criminal records, and that’s what we’re starting right away,” Trump said.
