Alice Johnson has been released from prison and the moment she reunited with her family was absolutely priceless.
The 63-year-old Tennessee grandmother was sentenced to life in prison for a non-violent drug conviction. She’s spent the last 21 years behind bars.
On Wednesday, Trump commuted her sentence a week after meeting with Kim Kardashian, who has fought to free Alice.
Kim had the pleasure of telling Alice Johnson she was a free woman.
The phone call I just had with Alice will forever be one of my best memories. Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget.

Alice ran full speed to the loving arms of her family, who screamed and cheered as they wrapped their arms around her.
Completely overwhelmed with emotion Alice told the media:
I want to thank Donald John Trump. He gave me another chance in life and restoring me to my family.
I want to thank Kim Kardashian West … thank you Kim … I’m free to live life and free to start over … I have a lot of catching up to do with my family … I can’t wait to get back on the workforce … and get back to my community.
She has truly been relentless in her fight for me. To know a woman who has never met me … who has embraced my story and taken me into her heart … this is not just a publicity thing for her. Kim told me when she left that White House meeting that no matter how this turns out … she would never stop fighting for me.
Watch Alice reunite with her family below.
God bless her.
