Kim Kardashian-West Will Meet With Trump About Criminal Justice Reform Today

Kim Kardashian-West is headed back to the White House. 

In a tweet, she explained that she would be meeting with President Donald Trump along with three women who recently had their sentences commuted by the President and are now free. 

“Today Alice, Crystal, Judith, Tynice and I, along with the @cut_50 team will be at the White House bringing light to these women and discuss more change that our justice system desperately needs!” she wrote.

Cut 50 is a criminal justice reform group co-founded by Van Jones.

“President Trump commuted the sentences of three really deserving women. I didn’t hear much about it in the news so I wanted to share with you their stories! I have the pleasure of spending the day with these women today along with [Alice Johnson] who helped to pick these women,” Kardashian-West went on to tweet. “Crystal Munoz was sentenced to 20 years in prison for conspiracy to posses & distribute marijuana. She left behind a five-month-old baby and was pregnant. Crystal was shackled by prison guards during the birth of her second daughter. Her case was highlighted in the First Step Act. [Crystal’s] case was highlighted in the First Step Act which banned the degrading and inhumane treatment of shackling female prisoners during childbirth.”

The First Step Act (Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act) was signed into law by Pres. Trump in 2018, and contains protections for inmates and other prison reforms. 

Kardashian-West also went on to tell  Tynice Hall’s and Judith Negron’s story. 

“Judith Negron was sentenced to 35 years in prison for conspiracy to commit health care fraud. After trial she received the longest sentence ever given to a female for a white collar crime. A mother, she left behind two young sons. This was Judith’s first ever offense,” she wrote. “Wardens and staff alike spoke glowingly of the incredible contributions Judith made to the prison while incarcerated.”

“Tynice Hall was sentenced to 35 years in prison for a first time nonviolent drug conspiracy,” Kardashian-West explained. “Her boyfriend at the time used her house for his illegal drug activities. She was only 22 years old when she went to prison and left behind a three year old son. Tynice rehabilitated herself and prepared for a future outside of prison by completing numerous classes and becoming certified in various trades.”

Kardashian-West and Trump previously met in the summer of 2018 to discuss criminal justice reform.
