After Alice Marie Johnson received the news of her commutation, Kim Kardashian, who advocated for her release from prison, has made a decision to travel to Memphis to meet with Johnson in person.

"'You can go home now".

Kim helped convince President Trump why he should commute the 63-year-old non-violent drug offender after a meeting with POTUS and White House adviser Jared Kushner in separate meetings back on May 30.

A few minutes after meeting, both Kim and Alice said about one another: "Love this woman!" "Kim was the one to tell Alice that she was being released".

The two sat down for their first joint interview with the Today show just moments after meeting, and in a promo for the interview, which airs Thursday, it's clear they have a deep connection.

The reality star expressed her gratitude to the president in a tweet which read, "Best news ever! Love you, Alice!" Johnson was sent to prison in 1996, 19 years before Snapchat introduced the filter options. "The most incredible, amazing, overwhelming moment of my life", Johnson told CBS This Morningof the phone call. I started screaming and jumping. "I'm telling you, I was dancing, I was dancing, I was jumping, I was screaming, I was doing everything".

'I hope to continue important work by working together with organizations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition'. You fought and you fought until I was free. Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are deserving of a second chance.

"Everyone has brought attention to this case and I just happened to see it on Twitter".

More than a dozen people were lined up across the home where Kardashian and Johnson met.
