The Trump Era: Prisoners Bracing for the Unknown

It has been gloomy in prison since the presidential election. Prisoners have much to worry about with the Trump administration, especially in light of potential cabinet members like Senator Jeff Sessions (Attorney General). Many of Trump’s cabinet members are blatantly racist perspective and many have in the past taken a strong stance against second chances and opportunities for redemption for felons. The drug laws and related sentences that the Obama administration worked to correct that provided so much hope for the incarcerated and their loved ones are now in limbo. No one knows what will become of the progress already made. Then the appellate process, from the Circuit Courts up to the Supreme Court, will change and most likely increase the struggle for felons to regain their freedom through post-conviction relief. Overall, it’s tense inside prison. Racial tension has increased not only among prisoners but between prisoners and officers. White Trump supporters gained a sense of validation and protection. Politics affects every area of our lives. #Bracingfortheunknown
