"I am calling to have you to introduce and cosponsor the Barber Amendment, because I am concerned that almost 211,000 people are "Endlessly" languishing in federal prisons in the U.S. The average age is 38 years old. Most are serving long sentences, for a non-violent offense like marijuana; the majority of whom are first time offenders. There is no parole.
