Joe Biden is recognized for including open borders, extensive wealth redistribution programs, and lying with his mouth open. What is he doing today, throwing out 110 million public money to “currently and recently jailed individuals”?
The Office of Justice Programs at the Department of Justice has announced awards totaling more than $110.7 million to decrease recidivism and support individuals and kids returning to their communities following incarceration. They need to assist people in reuniting with their families, finding a place to live, getting health treatment, and other things, according to OJP.
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) of the Biden Justice Department awards grants to jurisdictions, non-profit organizations, research institutions, and other agencies to support evidence-based approaches to reintegrate formerly incarcerated people back into society. Among the “award recipients” are OJP’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), and the Office of Juvenile Justice. There’s no information on how much money this will bring to victims of violent crimes perpetrated by any of these people or their families.
The United States Department of Justice is dedicated to ensuring that those who have been jailed in the past receive the treatment, training, and assistance they require when they return to their communities. They must assist them in reuniting with their families, locating housing, obtaining health care and behavioral health treatments, obtaining an education, and entering the workforce. These materials are essential for effective reintegration and community health and safety.
According to OJP President Vanita Gupta, If they genuinely believe in second chances and the power of redemption, they must offer individuals who leave their jails the skills and assistance they need to play a constructive and productive part in society.
More than $26.3 million will be provided to strengthen educational and employment opportunities for jailed people and treatment facilities for people who have drug abuse problems. This program funds programs to prevent, identify, and respond to physical abuse and harassment in detention institutions and ensure that the Prison Elimination Act is followed. Over $3.5 million will be spent on research to see if new or improved implementations of the rapid, specific, and fair intervention principles will reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for persons under community supervision.
They are not proposing that programs that assist convicted criminals in reintegrating into society shouldn’t exist. However, programs like these for frequent violent crime repeat offenders are often akin to clueless Kamala Harris strolling out to the Northern Triangle searching for the “root reasons” of illegal immigration (once).
Symbolism, pandering, and outright lying have long been hallmarks of liberalism. It’s never been about finding answers, especially to issues they profess to want to solve. Understand “all of the above,” and they’ll have a better understanding of the American liberal worldview. It is just another classic illustration of liberalism’s deception.
