Trump's Executive Orders on Crime Foment "Dark View of Society"

Stoking fears of a crackdown on immigrants and civil liberties, President Donald Trump on Thursday signed three executive orders addressing crime. 

“A new era of justice begins, and it begins right now,” Trump said to conclude prepared remarks at the White House. The orders were signed following Jeff Sessions’ swearing-in as U.S. attorney general.

According to McClatchy:

As the text of the memoranda trickled out, USA Today reporter Gregory Korte noted that one of the orders links crime with “illegal immigration”—echoing remarks Trump made Wednesday before a law enforcement conference, in which he blamed gang violence in Chicago on undocumented immigrants.

Attorney and immigration reform advocate David Leopold similarly warned that by putting “‘illegal immigration’ on par with drug trafficking and violent crime,” Trump is making “clear he’s about to unleash his deportation force.”
