President Donald Trump announces his support for a criminal justice reform bill, called the First Step Act, at the White House in Washington, Nov. 14, 2018. Trump threw his support behind the substantial rewrite of the nation’s prison and sentencing laws Wednesday, and Senators have staked the success of the bipartisan agreement on him. But powerful pockets of opposition remain among some law enforcement officials and conservative lawmakers. (Al Drago/Copyright 2018 The New York Times)
