From Washington Post:

Garland moved in that direction on Tuesday, when he reversed Trump administration policy and said federal inmates who had been released from prison to limit covid-19’s spread will be allowed to remain home and “not unnecessarily returned to prison” if they “have made rehabilitative progress and complied with the conditions of home confinement.”

That was a top issue for Kevin Ring, president of FAMM (formerly known as Families Against Mandatory Minimums), who was among advocates on the Zoom meeting who were irritated by administration policies. Other organizations at the meeting were the Leadership Conference, Justice Action Network, R Street Institute, the Sentencing Project and Justice Roundtable.
