President Signs Executive Orders To Fight Crime

posted on February 11, 2017

On Thursday, prior to the swearing in of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Donald Trump was focused on reducing crime. "I'm signing three executive actions today designed to restore safety in America,” Trump said before the swearing-in of Sessions.

The first order, aimed at international crime organizations, is designed to combat drug cartels and “to undertake all necessary and lawful action to break the back of the criminal cartels that have spread across our nation and are destroying the blood of our youth.” 

The second order addresses law enforcement. It directs the Justice Department to use existing federal law to prosecute those who commit crimes against police officers.

Trump’s final executive order gives Sessions authority to create a task force aimed at furthering strategies “to reduce crime, including, in particular, illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and violent crime.” Sessions himself called today’s crime rate a “dangerous permanent trend that places the health and safety of the American people at risk."
