Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden called the controversial 1994 crime bill a "mistake," acknowledging it led to an increase in the jailing of people of color.

In an ABC News forum held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia and moderated by the ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, Biden said though the bill had the support of Black leaders at the time, things have "changed drastically."

"The mistake came in terms of what the states did locally," he said. "What we did federally … it was all about the same time for the same crime."

"It was a mistake," he said.
