George Soros secretly provided financial contributions to help transform criminal justice and elect prosecutors in various districts in the U.S. Throughout the years, the billionaire has announced support for the democratic party and donated hundreds of millions of dollars. His mission is to reshape the justice system on local, state, and federal levels by providing the funds to elect officials. According to Politico Magazine, he contributed $3 million in 2016 to seven district attorney campaigns in Mississippi. Florida, and four other states. Soros and the district attorneys share mutual interests in reducing racial inconsistencies in sentencing and avoiding prosecuting drug offenders.
Instead of prosecution and sending first time drug offenders to jail and prison, they should be sending them to helpful programs. Soros also supported district attorney campaigns in Texas, Illinois, New Mexico, and Louisiana through PACs state and national networks. The Florida Safety and Justice received more than $1 million to support Democratic primary for state attorney in Central Florida. He gave elected democratic district attorney, Raul Torrez $107,000 to help in his campaign in Bernalillo County in Albuquerque. Soros backed democratic district attorney, James Stewart in Louisiana with over $930,000 to conquer opponent Dhu Thompson, in 2015.
Reform groups, such as the Open Society Foundation, which is founded by George Soros believe that district attorneys have important roles in the justice systems. These groups demand solutions and transformation of the system to reduce prison inmate population and promote drug rehabilitation programs. Open Society advocates reform of the criminal justice system all over the world involving unjust and inequality policies and legislation. The foundation is actively working on drug policies and criminal justice in America and immigration worldwide. In more than 100 countries the non-profit is supporting transparency of human rights, criminal justice, liberty, and open society values.
