Americans, not criminal aliens
“We're going to take care of the problem," President Donald J. Trump
told a room full of Cabinet officials, elected leaders, and law enforcement
representatives during a roundtable discussion on sanctuary cities at the
White House yesterday.
The President’s highest duty is to protect the safety and well-being of
American citizens. Lawless sanctuary jurisdictions nullify Federal law,
obstruct immigration enforcement, and release thousands of criminals into
U.S. communities. “They are not sanctuary cities; they are outlaw cities,”
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said at yesterday’s meeting.
The Senator is right, and the Trump Administration has taken action to
ensure our Nation’s laws are faithfully enforced. During the 2017 fiscal
year, ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations team made more than 140,000
administrative arrests and effected more than 225,000 removals.
“Our cities should be sanctuaries for Americans—not for criminal aliens,”
President Trump says.
saying about President Trump’s opioids plan
Monday afternoon, President Trump and the First Lady visited Manchester,
New Hampshire, to talk through the ways this Administration is confronting
America’s devastating opioid epidemic. The President’s initiative has three
pillars: 1) reduce demand and over-prescription, 2) cut off the supply of
illicit drugs, and 3) help those already struggling with addiction.
In the days since, a number of officials have weighed in on the plan:
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI): “The opioid epidemic continues to
ravage our communities, and President Trump is right to continue the fight
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tweeted “.@POTUS’
proposals to combat opioid addiction demonstrate that there is ample
opportunity to reach a bipartisan consensus.”
Gov. Jim Justice (R-WV): “People are dying every day from opioid
abuse. I’m encouraged and hopeful that @POTUS’s plans will help us take
bigger steps to resolve this scourge on our society.”
