Wednesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin voiced concerns with the proposed criminal justice reform bill endorsed by President Donald Trump. He highlighted several problems with the First Step Act.

“Now the vast majority of you haven’t read this proposed bill, but it sounds good, and that’s always the problem,” Levin said.

“I do not believe in these broad-brush so-called reform bills, because ultimately out of the thousands and thousands of individuals who will see their sentences reduced or eliminated, there will be many individuals who shouldn’t be released. And they’re released out into our communities, where they threaten our police and they threaten your families and your kids.”

“What this actually does is it rolls back the Reagan-era sentencing guidelines, which significantly reduced crime in this country,” Levin said.

“It’s a bad idea.”
