Sen. Dan Sullivan faces backlash for mass prison break support

April 27, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government today issued the following statement expressing disappointment with Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) who on April 22 for supported legislation that will lead to the early release of thousands of federal prison inmates:

“We are disappointed that Sen. Sullivan is supporting legislation that will leave Alaskans vulnerable to violent felons and drug traffickers being released from federal prison early. Americans for Limited Government has praised Sullivan in the for his views on the Internet giveaway and other important topics, and we urge him to reconsider his position as it is a solution in search of a problem.

“In truth, Wendell Callahan who after early release allegedly committed a triple murder in Columbus, Ohio would still have been eligible for early release under the new legislation. There is simply no excuse for kowtowing to President Obama, Van Jones and the hard left on this mass prison break out of some misplaced libertarian fantasy. The truth is, passage of this legislation will result in more crime, more violence and more deaths.”
