President Trump - Week 61: Combating Opioids

COMBATING THE OPIOID CRISIS
President Trump visited New Hampshire this week to address the opioid crisis devastating communities across America. While there, President Trump offered words of comfort saying “Failure is not an option. Addiction is not our future.” The President is fighting hard to end the epidemic with a plan that will:
• Reduce drug demand through education, awareness, and preventing over-prescription.
• Cut off the flow of illicit drugs across our borders and within communities.
• Save lives now by expanding opportunities for proven treatments for opioid and other drug addictions.

SANCTUARY CITIES
This week, President Trump hosted a roundtable with law enforcement to address sanctuary cities. By providing a safe haven for criminal illegal aliens who are suspected or convicted of violent crimes, sanctuary cities are endangering our communities, law enforcers, and our entire country. The Department of Justice recently sued the State of California for passing statutes that prevent ICE and other federal law enforcement officers from access to criminal illegal aliens. This is one step the Trump Administration has taken as it continues to do everything in its power to stop these radical policies by faithfully enforcing our nation’s immigration laws.
NATIONAL AGRICULTURE DAY

This week, President Trump proclaimed March 20th as National Agriculture Day. On this day, the U.S. pays tribute to American farmers and reflects on the essential role agriculture plays in our society. In his proclamation, President Trump said, “We acknowledge the tremendous work ethic, ingenuity, determination, and perseverance of American farmers.” The President has demonstrated his deep commitment to agriculture through his Rural Prosperity Plan that will bring much-needed economic relief and infrastructure to these proud American communities.
STOP SCHOOL VIOLENCE ACT PASSES HOUSE
The Republican-led House of Representatives is taking steps to enhance school safety with an essential new national policy. Last week, the House passed the STOP School Violence Act of 2018. This legislation protects American students and educators by authorizing state-based grants that will support evidence-based prevention programs. The Act now heads to the Senate for what the Administration hopes is a swift approval process to help ensure that our schools are safe havens for learning for all students in America.
