Americans Strongly Support Sentencing Reform — Will Congress Listen?

Post Date: December 16, 2013

Poll71percentA new poll shows that 7 out of 10 Americans — 71 percent — support ending mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent offenders. They believe that judges should be able to “make sentencing decisions on a case-by-case basis.”

That sounds pretty reasonable to us! 

Let’s make sure Congress hears this message. Let lawmakers know that it’s time for change by writing to your U.S. Senators in support of the Smarter Sentencing Act today!

    My husband, Robert Levy is a Vietnam Era Veteran… After completing his sentence, and although qualified for citizenship under 8CFR 329 as he was convicted October 31,1990, he was still denied the opportunity to apply for citizenship and was instead separated from us, his family. The court changed his conviction to December 21, the date he was sentenced… I thought Conviction date was the date he was found guilty….NOT sentenced date…

    We, his family, are American Citizen (either through birth or Naturalized).

    This fate has been unbearable for us… We have tried to deal with it the best way we can; however, it has been an extremely difficult fate for us. The years simply doesn’t diminish the pain.

    Help!!! 224/321-2968.
