If you follow the news you know it’s been a hectic month in the United States. Trump’s presidency has been riddled with protests, controversies, and a cascade of executive orders. I’ll be writing one of these posts every month with links to the “news highlights” of that month that relate to the President, his cabinet, and his orders.
Total of 11 executive orders (if you don’t count the Muslim ban since federal courts ruled against it).
- Building the wall
- The Muslim Ban
- Criminalizing green card holders with traffic violations, criminalizing immigrants at the discretion of an immigration officer (dangerous level of decisive power to give to an officer)
- Opening the avenue for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines to be completed (oil pipeline ruptured this same week)
- Banning executive officials from lobbying executive agencies which they served for a period of five years after completing their service
- Crackdown on Human trafficking
