President Trump Acts to Restore Public Safety and Protect Law Enforcement with Three Executive Orders

In a press release Saturday, February 11, 2017, President Trump announced three key Executive Orders that stand up for law enforcement officers and push back against the rising tide of crime with three key Executive Orders.


President Trump’s first Executive Order directs the newly installed Attorney General to develop a strategy to more effectively prosecute people who engage in crimes against law enforcement officers. The release said, “Our men and women in blue need to know that we are with them 100 percent as they patrol our streets.”

Attorney General Sessions will prosecute criminals who target law enforcement officers to the fullest extent of the law, and recommend new laws to protect those who dedicate themselves to safeguarding our communities.

The Attorney General will evaluate the Department’s grant programs to make sure they prioritize the protection and safety of law enforcement officers.


President Trump’s second Executive Order establishes a task force, led by the new Attorney General, to reduce crime and restore public safety in communities across America.
Over the last eight years, America has suffered from a declining focus on law and order. Crime reduction will be a White House priority.


President Trump’s third Executive Order re-focuses the Federal Government’s energy and resources on dismantling transnational criminal organizations, such as drug cartels.
The current Administration will upgrade the Nation’s information gathering about transnational organizations, like cartels. The Administration declare, “We will identify accurate information about these organizations, which threaten our public safety, and coordinate with domestic and foreign counterparts, to effectively combat the threat they pose.” The Administration also said order will improve the speed and efficiency of removing aliens who are cartel members or who aid cartels in their criminal activities.

Under the order, the interagency Threat Mitigation Working Group will focus resources on disrupting transnational criminal organizations and preventing them from threatening our society.

The Administration cited the following statistics …

In 2015, murders spiked in the largest single-year increase in nearly half a century.
In 2016, murders in large cities increased by double digits.
Last year in Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot.

On Wednesday February 8, 2017, President Trump gave a speech to the Joint Winter Meeting of the Major Cities Chiefs Association and Major County Sheriffs’ Association.

On Tuesday February 7, 2017, President Trump hosted a group of county sheriffs from across the country to discuss his commitment to securing the borders and reducing crime.

On Wednesday January 22, 2017, President Trump held a White House reception to honor the law enforcement officers and other first responders who helped make the Presidential Inauguration a success.
