New Orders by Trump Make Law & Order a Priority

New Orders by Trump Make Law & Order a Priority

Jeff Sessions became the new attorney general as the U.S. Senate narrowly confirmed him on Thursday.  With him being sworn in, the Justice Department is supposedly being revamped and Trump announced new orders to make law and order a priority.  He had written a series of executive orders aimed at fighting crime and drug trafficking and protecting police officers.  One executive order announced Thursday directs the Justice Department to define new federal crimes and increase penalties for existing ones, to protect federal and local officers from acts of violence.

Another executive order is to create a task force aimed at reducing violent crime.  Another executive order is aimed at dismantling international drug cartels.  Click on the above link to read the rest of the article.
