Trump Issues Executive Orders To Fight Gangs & Cartels, Protect Local Cops

"A new era of justice begins ..."

President Donald Trump used the occasion of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ swearing-in ceremony to unveil three executive orders aimed at fighting crime and supporting local police.

JUST IN: Trump signs 3 exec. orders that he says targets gang members, drug dealers, drug cartels & crimes against law enforcement officers

“Today’s ceremony should be seen as a clear message to the gang members and drug dealers terrorizing innocent people, your day is over,” the president said. “A new era of justice begins and it begins right now.”

“These executive actions continue to deliver on my campaign promises,” Trump contented.

The law enforcement section of the White House website makes Trump’s goal clear.

“Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, or the violent disrupter. Our job is to make life more comfortable for parents who want their kids to be able to walk the streets safely. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus. Or the young child walking home from school,” it states on the Trump White House page.

To implement that philosophy, Trump issued three orders on Thursday.

“First, I’m directing Department of Justice and Homeland Security 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 and other people, many other people,” said Trump.

The order noted that “the trafficking by cartels of controlled substances has triggered a resurgence in deadly drug abuse and a corresponding rise in violent crime related to drugs. Likewise, the trafficking and smuggling of human beings by transnational criminal groups risks creating a humanitarian crisis. These crimes, along with many others, are enriching and empowering these organizations to the detriment of the American people.”

“Secondly, I’m directing Department of Justice to form a task force on reducing violent crime in America,” the president added.

The order says that, “A focus on law and order and the safety and security of the American people requires a commitment to enforcing the law and developing policies that comprehensively address illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and violent crime.”

The attorney general will develop the composition of the task force, Trump’s order states.

“And thirdly, I’m directing the Department of Justice to implement a plan to stop crime and crimes of violence against law enforcement officers,” he said.

That order also calls for “recommendations to the President for legislation to address the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers, including, if warranted, legislation defining new crimes of violence and establishing new mandatory minimum sentences for existing crimes of violence against Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers …”

At Thursday’s ceremony, Trump said he would protect America’s law enforcement community.

“It’s a shame what’s been happening to our great, truly great law enforcement officers. That’s going to stop as of today.”

I have no doubt that the progressive liberals will have problems with protecting police officers, and using GITMO to house prisoners.  They are truly anti-American. There is no path of reconciliation with them. So be prepared for what is coming.

If a liberal judge can block the immigration order, what's to stop another liberal judge from blocking these orders ?? Either the President has power of the executive branch or he doesn't . I think these orders are good and desperately needed!! He's giving us a heads up that things will get a lot messier, before they start to get cleaned up !! We must support him, and local  law enforcement !!  I hope he brings back capital punishment on the federal level because some extra deterrent is always good !!

President Trump  should get the military to back up his orders. The liberals are asking for it.

Good  about time - now get busy protecting the people and stopping these insane violent riots.

i like this very much

Am waiting for the liberals, the democrats protest this EO

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
