President Donald Trump has just signed three new executive orders to curb the crime rate in the United States, a right move in the right direction and at the right time.
One of the new executive orders is aimed at reducing crime and restoring public safety and the Task Force will develop strategies to reduce crime, including, in particular, illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and violent crime, propose new legislation, and submit at least one report to the President within the next year.
According to CNN, Donald Trump signed the three new executive orders on Thursday 10th February in the Oval Office after the swearing-in Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He says these executive orders will restore safety in America.
“It’s a shame what’s been happening to our great, truly great law enforcement officers.”
The second executive order is aimed at combating trans-national drug cartels, prescribes steps for various federal agencies to increase intelligence sharing among law enforcement partners.
An existing inter-agency working group is already working on the order. They are expected to submit a report to Trump within four months with details on the progress made in combating criminal organizations, along with any recommended actions for dismantling them.
“I’m directing Department of Justice and the Department of 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.”
The third order directs the Justice Department to use existing federal law to prosecute those who commit crimes against law enforcement officers.
According to Trump, it’s a shame what’s been happening to the great law enforcement officers of great American and henceforth, all the nonsense will be no more.
Amnesty International USA swiftly reacted to the executive order, saying that while law enforcement officers face unique hardships and challenges due to the nature of their work, this order does not address underlying problems in the criminal justice system.
Amnesty International’s Noor Mir said in a statement:
“This order will not protect anyone, and instead it creates additional penalties that could cause people to be significantly over-prosecuted for offenses including resisting arrest.”
Meanwhile, Kanye West has blacklisted President Trump as he is no more a Trump supporter. Recently, he deleted all his tweets mentioning the US president.
Thereafter, the American rap artiste allegedly did a diss video on Trump. However, there are claims that Kanye was being impersonated by one King Myers, who dropped a tune called “Propaganda” and slapped Kanye’s fingerprints all over it.
Myers, who’s twitter handle is ‘Ye’s and has an avatar cover art, may just be using Kanye and President Trump to make a name for himself.
On a lighter note, Donald Trump may be signing another order soon – to checkmate the use of his name and figure for any form of caricature, but in memes, videos and sculptures.
