President of the United States of America (USA), Donald Trump, made an important announcement regarding HR 5682, The First Step Act. It envisages prison reforms, wherein former inmates are allowed to seek jobs. Trump announced a 'bipartisan agreement' in which 'former inmates can receive and re-enter society as law-abiding, productive citizens. They now have a chance at more opportunities than before, thanks to a 'booming economy,' he said. He said that he knows of three companies that hired ex-inmates and that too at a time when the job market is at the lowest in the country.
