The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is launching a six-figure ad buy featuring both digital and print spots calling for President Biden to adhere to his campaign promise of decreasing the number of incarcerated persons in the country.
Specifically, the ACLU wants Biden to grant clemency to thousands of people who meet certain criteria, something that he could do through executive powers.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We use criteria that reflect an evolution in our thinking around criminal justice,” Cynthia Roseberry, deputy director of the ACLU’s justice division, told The Hill.
Roseberry added, “For example, calling for those who are now incarcerated, but who if they were sentenced today, would not receive the same sentence. And then common sense things like calling for the elderly to be released … people who are vulnerable to [COVID-19] … people who are convicted of drug offenses and people who have been incarcerated for technical probation or parole violations.”
According to their ‘criteria,’ ACLU estimated that Biden could release as many as 25,000 inmates from prison.
