President Trump signed the criminal justice reform bill he and son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner lobbied for, marking a significant bipartisan achievement in a time when successful bipartisan legislation on major issues is rare.

Mr. Trump signed the criminal justice reform bill in the Oval Office, after the House and Senate easily passed the legislation, with 12 Republican senators voting against the bill and all Democratic senators present voting for it. The legislation gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug and lower-level offenders, and increases prisoner rehabilitation efforts.

For the first time in a long time, with the passage of this bill into law, our country will make a meaningful break from the decades of failed policies that led to mass incarceration, which has cost taxpayers billions of dollars, drained our economy, compromised public safety, hurt our children and disproportionately harmed communities of color while devaluing the very idea of justice in America,
