    ​Ask President Trump to ​promise to sign this federal legislation into law once it has passed both houses of Congress.  
    Senator ​Mitch ​McConnell ​pledged bring the legislation up for a vote IF the President will sign it. Jared Kushner, whose father has been incarcerated​, ​is pushing this ​bill.
