According to Fox News, he has commuted the sentences of 214 federal prisoners, making it the most sentences commuted in one day by a president since 1900. The majority of the sentences are for non-violence drug crimes, but 67 of them are life sentences.

On Twitter, the White House proudly announced that Obama has now commuted 562 sentences, which is more than the past 9 presidents combined.

White House counsel Neil Eggleston says the president is trying to send a message.

"All of the individuals receiving commutation today — incarcerated under outdated and unduly harsh sentencing laws — embody the president's belief that 'America is a nation of second chances,"' Eggleston said.
