Jared Kushner is now pushing Trump administration for prison reform

BY TERENCE CULLEN NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 1:37 PM

 

Senior Trump adviser Jared Kushner has reportedly tacked on another responsibility to his grocery list of White House duties: prison reform.

 

The President’s son-in-law has been meeting with stakeholders, including reformed convicts and religious leaders, about changing how America incarcerates, Axios reports.

 

President Trump on Thursday will have a listening session about the topic, according to Axios.

 

Kushner, who turns 37 on Wednesday, and his Office of American Innovation have been quietly discussing the topic with experts for the last six months, the website reported.

 

The former real estate developer and his wife, Ivanka Trump, even hosted Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) at their Washington, D.C., home to discuss the prison reform.

 

The White House is looking at potential administrative moves and bills it could put forward, according to the website.

 

Axios also noted prison reform is a personal topic for Kushner, whose father, Charles Kushner, served 14 months in prison after pleading guilty to a number of white-collar crimes.

 

Kushner flew to Alabama, where his father was incarcerated, every Sunday to visit him, according to a 2009 New York magazine profile.

 

Since following his father-in-law to the White House last year, Kushner has been tasked with addressing a number of issues. The former businessman is in charge of making the executive branch more efficient, working out a peace deal in the Middle East and fostering job growth.

 

Whitehouse, who introduced a prison reform bill with Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), signaled he’s encouraged by the potential discussion.

 

“States have succeeded in better preparing inmates for release, lowering costs and reducing crime, and in sentencing reforms,” Whitehouse said in a statement to the Daily News. “My advice has been to align our common goals, the position of Attorney General Sessions, and willingness by Republican legislative leaders to hold votes.”
