WASHINGTON — As a part of his overall strategy to reform the “broken criminal justice system,” President Barack Obama is expected to visit a federal prison next week.
White House officials announced the visit on Friday, saying Obama will visit El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in El Reno, Oklahoma this coming Thursday.
There, he is expected to meet with inmates and law enforcement officials, said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
At the prison, Obama will also conduct an interview with VICE that will be a part of a documentary airing this fall on HBO focusing on America’s “broken criminal justice system,”
El Reno is a medium security federal correctional institution.
The visit to El Reno will be a part of a two-day trip to Oklahoma.
