Groups sue Trump over '2 for 1' Executive Order on regulations

Can This Lawsuit Halt Trump's Dangerous Deregulatory Edict?

NRDC and Partners Sue Trump Administration Over 2-for-1 Regulations Order

Filed by the Public Citizen Litigation Group, the National Resources Defense Council and the Communications Workers of America, the complaint argues Trump's executive order unlawfully forces agencies to make decisions based on an "impermissible and arbitrary choice-whether to issue a new standard at the cost of the loss of benefits of two existing standards".

"President Trump intends to build task forces to investigate and stop national trends that don't exist", the American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement on February 9. Trump declared. "It's a shame what's been happening to our great, truly great law enforcement officers".

"We'll deploy the talents and abilities of the Department of Justice to confront this rise in crime and protect the people of our country", Sessions said Thursday.

It further directs the Department of Justice to work with other federal agencies to come up with ways to reduce violence against police, as well as orders "a hard look" at how DOJ and other entities use their law enforcement grants, according to Spicer.

The White House, as has become habit, didn't put out the text of the orders immediately after he signed them. "It's gonna stop as of today". "The trafficking by cartels of controlled substances has triggered a resurgence in deadly drug abuse and a corresponding rise in violent crime related to drugs". When speaking to a police chiefs' association earlier this week, Trump correctly cited a statistic about the number of officers shot and killed in the line of duty a year ago: It increased by 56% from 2015 to 2016.

While the reported violent crime rate in the United States rose in 2015 compared to the previous year, it has fallen consistently since the early 1990s.

Sensex ends higher, bank stocks recover
A weak closing in Asia tracking overnight losses in the United States owing to all these unknowns triggered selling, brokers said. Among losers were Lupin (-1.20%), Cipla (-1.13%), Tata Motors (-0.98%), ICICI Bank (-0.75%) and ITC (-0.72%).

The executive order lends new credence to the false narrative of police officers under siege, and calls for action to fight this fake scourge in partnership with the newly confirmed Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The actual number of officers shot past year was 64, according to preliminary data from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Trump and Sessions are not expected to continue such reforms that address the increased awareness of police brutality.

"Law enforcement officials have been vocal about the lack of support they received under the past administration". He repeated the distortion again when speaking to USA sheriffs at the White House on February 7.

In the blizzard of signing ceremonies, you might have forgotten that Trump issued an executive order mandating that federal agencies eliminate at least two regulations for every one they bring into existence, and that the total net costs of regulations on individuals and business entities in 2017 must be $0.

"We need to end this lawlessness that threatens the public safety and pulls down the wages of working Americans", he said.

They name Trump, the USA government and new Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, among a list of other executive branch employees, as defendants in the case.
