Trump Signs Executive Actions on Crime

Trump Signs Executive Actions on Crime

The executive order also asks the Justice Department to work with other federal agencies to make recommendations to the president about new legislation that would protect law enforcement officers working at the federal, state, tribal and local levels.

Trump has on January 24 criticized the city of Chicago for its high homicide rates, tweeting "if Chicago doesn't fix the disgusting "carnage" going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the feds!" Secondly, he directed department of justice to form a task force on reducing violent crime in America.

As his new attorney general, Jeff Sessions, was sworn in Thursday, Trump said he was signing the executive actions to "restore safety in America". That group is tasked with "develop [ing] strategies to reduce crime" and proposing new legislation "to improve public safety and reduce crime".

"It's important to emphasize we can not reduce crime in the United States without additionally addressing illegal immigration and illegal drugs", he said.

The president signed an order to enforce federal laws against transnational criminal organizations and global drug traffickers.

The president met earlier Thursday at the White House with airline executives. The panel is expected to present a report within a year.

Interestingly, the news indicates that Apple is focusing more toward Apple TV and on offering more quality content for the device. Apple TV has been hampered by its relatively high price and lack of support for Amazon Video and Spotify, the researcher said.

As Quartz points out, the trends do not support Trump's assertions that crime is trending upward (he recently falsely claimed that murders are at at 47-year high). However, the Wall Street Journal reported "newcomers to the US are less likely than the native population to commit violent crimes or be incarcerated".

A second executive order, aimed at combating transnational drug cartels, prescribes steps for various federal agencies to "increase intelligence" sharing among law enforcement partners. With the new mandates, he plans to tackle criminal cartels, violent crime, and violence against police. "His administration is anti-black and this is a time for us in the Black Lives Matter movement to rise up; this is a time for us to resist", Kahlif said.

Trump did not say what, precisely, is happening to law enforcement officers, but it seems likely he is referring to an alleged spike in police officer deaths, since he referred to this during his RNC speech and at other moments during his campaign.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The Obama administration also aggressively investigated the police with systemic reviews of entire departments to address the root cause of conflict between law enforcement and residents.

"Under Attorney General Sessions, the Justice Department will return to its original core mission - to uphold the rule of law, to ensure that justice is administered and enforced fairly and impartially for all Americans", he added.
