Why Does Legal-Eagles.org Support Donald J. Trump Over Joe Biden?














At Legal-Eagles.org, our mission is to advocate for fair and equitable criminal justice reform. We have always been dedicated to supporting policies and leaders who prioritize reducing sentences for non-violent offenders and providing second chances to those who deserve them. In the context of the upcoming presidential election, our organization has chosen to support Donald J. Trump over Joe Biden primarily due to Trump’s significant contributions to criminal justice reform, particularly through the signing of the First Step Act.


The First Step Act: A Landmark Achievement

One of the most transformative pieces of legislation in recent years is the First Step Act, signed into law by President Trump in December 2018. This bipartisan bill has brought about crucial changes in the federal criminal justice system, including:


Reduced Sentences for Non-Violent Drug Offenders: The Act reduced mandatory minimum sentences for certain non-violent drug offenses, addressing the excessive penalties that have disproportionately affected minority communities.

Retroactive Application of the Fair Sentencing Act: The Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, which reduced the disparity between sentences for crack and powder cocaine offenses, was made retroactive by the First Step Act, allowing thousands of inmates to seek reduced sentences.

Increased Good Time Credits: The Act increased the amount of good time credits inmates can earn, enabling well-behaved prisoners to reduce their sentences.

Rehabilitation and Reentry Programs: The First Step Act emphasizes the importance of rehabilitation by expanding access to vocational training, educational programs, and mental health services aimed at reducing recidivism.


A Personal Success Story: Jeffrey Johnson

One of our clients, Jeffrey Johnson, is a testament to the positive impact of the First Step Act. Jeffrey had been serving a 30-year sentence for a non-violent drug offense. Under the First Step Act, his sentence was reduced to 20 years, providing him with a renewed sense of hope and a tangible opportunity for reintegration into society. Before the passage of this Act, Jeffrey’s appeals for sentence reduction were denied under the Obama administration, highlighting the critical difference made by this legislation.


The Biden Legacy: Mass Incarceration and the "Super Predator" Stigma

While we acknowledge the importance of examining each candidate's full record, it is essential to address the historical context of Joe Biden and the Democratic Party's approach to criminal justice. During the 1990s, under the Clinton administration, several policies were enacted that contributed to mass incarceration and the stigmatization of certain offenders:


The 1994 Crime Bill: Officially known as the AEDPA Act. It introduced tougher sentencing laws, expanded the death penalty, and allocated significant funding for prison construction and additional police officers.

The Term "Super Predator": This term, used during the Clinton era, fueled a narrative that led to the harsh treatment of young offenders, particularly from minority communities. It reinforced stereotypes and justified the expansion of the prison system.

The Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (AEDPA): Passed in 1996, the AEDPA severely limited prisoners' ability to seek relief through habeas corpus petitions, restricting their chances for a fair review of their sentences.

A Path Forward

While no administration is without its flaws, we believe that President Trump's actions through the First Step Act have made a tangible, positive difference in the lives of many individuals, including those like Jeffrey Johnson. The Act represents a crucial step towards addressing the injustices of the past and moving towards a more equitable criminal justice system.


Legal-Eagles.org stands firmly behind policies that offer second chances and support meaningful reform. In light of these considerations, we endorse Donald J. Trump as the candidate who has demonstrated a commitment to these values through his support and enactment of the First Step Act. Our hope is for continued progress in criminal justice reform, ensuring that every individual has the opportunity for redemption and a brighter future.
