Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's record show's that she's generally been soft on crime. Fred Lucas writes:

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson once expressed concern about a “climate of fear, hatred, and revenge” surrounding sex offenders.

Jackson later opposed the confinement conditions of a Taliban leader suspected of running a terrorist cell.

The judge also routinely ruled against the Trump administration on immigration enforcement cases, as detailed here.

Now, as President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Jackson faces questions about her legal career and record on crime when her Senate confirmation hearing convenes Monday.
