It’s summertime, and what do we do during summer? Well some us work jobs and others live it up by the pool. If you’re like me the only traveling you're doing this summer is in your dreams and the only surfing you're doing is surfing the web. Summer means many different things and for many it means attending a family reunion. Now family reunions are the best because you can eat tons of food supplied by your grandmama and aunties, kick it with your cousins, and occasionally see grow folks act up. However, some may be forced to put their plans on hold as Donald Trump's new travel ban will go into effect soon.
exported about $27 million worth of asbestos products and Nearly 1.7 billion pounds of pesticides were exported from U.S. ports between 2001 and 2003. Nearly 28 million pounds of those pesticides were products forbidden in the U.S. (Peebles, 2013). One of the guidelines for selling these forbidden products to other countries is that disclosure is made to the foreign country that the product they are being sold is banned for sale in the US. By providing them with this information we are giving them the opportunity to decline the potentially dangerous product while making an unethical decision appear to be ethical for the good of the US by cashing in on unsafe items which carry hefty costs to safely dispose of.
Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution states that “Congress shall have power to regulate commerce with foreign nations, among the several states, and with the Indian Tribes” (Epstein, et. al., 2017). “Congress can regulate the channels of interstate commerce and has the authority to regulate and protect the instrumentalities of interstate commerce, and persons or things in interstate commerce. Congress has the power to regulate activities that substantially affect interstate commerce” (Epstein, et. al., 2017).
Executive Order 9066 has been determined unconstitutional. It was unconstitutional because it went against the laws stated in amendments. Executive order 9066 breaks the rights of amendments 2,4,5,6,7, and 8. Executive Order 9066 was when the Japanese Americans were ordered to go internment camps. During this time, the Japanese often worked and labored. Also, white children were separated from the Japanese Americans, in schools. This was signed in 1942, during WWII.
Executive order 13767, issued on January 25th, is a constitutional order because it is a current issue for the people that need be addressed sooner than congress could. It moves too, “Secure the southern border of the United States… by adequate personel so as to prevent illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking, and acts of terrorism” (“Border Security…”). This policy directly helps the American people and the national economy. People who are deported and then return as legal citizens are able to be taxed, providing more money for local government projects and improvements, and are also are able to receive their rights as citizens of the Country. Added security also will allow US citizens who live on the border to have less concern with drug trade from Mexico and
Comprehending the underlying authority for the President of the United States to authorize the international use of military operations in order to respond to an attack or as a counter-terrorism strategy, may be difficult to fathom for those who are not familiar with practices and philosophies associated in this realm. Conducting military operations against the Taliban government in Afghanistan, detaining suspected terrorists, both indefinitely domestically and abroad, and the use of unmanned drones to disrupt and destroy suspected terrorists and those aiding them in areas such as Pakistan fall under the umbrella of what the US has been able to accomplish in our last 12 years during the Global War on Terror.
With the coming of World War II, African Americans were arguably elevated to a higher standing in society due to the total war effort. But what part would Presidential and Military action take in this advancement since their duty is to protect their citizens? And would the efforts from these offices triumph over the racial prejudice that ruled American society, and most importantly, would their legacy last for an improved quality of life for a good portion of the US population. With these questions in mind, Executive Orders No. 8802 and 9981 as well as President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s call for increased admission of African Americans in the Armed Forces alone did not create change in social perception of Black US citizens, at times highlighting barriers to social equality, but did sow the roots for economic opportunity and in turn gave
Executive Order 13224 on Terrorist Financing under the guidelines of the United States (U.S) National Emergency Act (Pub. L. 94-412) went into effect on September 24, 2001 by President George W. Bush and remains active, for the reason that President Barak Obama, kept the order in an uninterrupted state of emergency throughout his presidency. Due to the guidelines of the statute, national state of emergencies expires one year after enactment; therefore President Donald Trump will has the option of renewing the order before it expires on September 23, 2017.
W Bush the 41st president, he decided to implement a ban on some of the certain styles of rifles. The rifles in question are what are commonly referred to as "assault rifles". An assault rifle is classified as such if it meets certain criteria- it is magazine fed, and military style weapon. If this is the case, then every firearm ever invented from the Chinese up until today's weaponry, they were all classified at one time or another to be military. President Bush was asked at a meeting with undercover DEA agents to place a ban on these assault style rifles that were winding up in the wrong hands (source noted). Because of the high rate of fire, and ammunition in magazine, narco traffickers who were obtaining these weapons clearly had an advantage to the law enforcement of the day (Stockton, CA school shooting, FBI Miami shootout of
Since the September 11 attacks terrorism attacks the world has been in a constant war with terrorism. Right after these attacks, the Congress rushed to pass rules to strengthen security in the United States while also limiting our freedoms as a US citizen. On October 23, 2001, the Patriot Act was proposed. This act allows law enforcement officials to obtain a search warrant anywhere a terrorist-related activity occurred, it Prohibits the harboring of terrorists, and it punishes terrorist acts in the United States and around the world. On October 25, 2001, the Act was passed by the Senate by 98 to 1. The one vote that was in opposition to the act was Senator Russell Feingold. He and other opponents of the law have criticized its detentions of immigrants, and how the law allows enforcement officers to search a home or business without the owner's consent or knowledge. Although he was outnumbered 98 to 1 he still made an extensive impact on the outcome of the Patriot
The USA PATRIOT Act was a piece of legislation that was signed into law to address the realities of modern terrorism. The new breed of terrorism was sophisticated and used new technologies that, according to the President, “were not available at the time that the existing laws were written”, he said in his speech during the bill signing press event on October 26. 2001; a fair argument. He said “The bill before me takes account of the new realities and dangers posed by modern terrorists” and the Patriot Act was “an essential step in defeating terrorism while protecting the constitutional rights of all Americans”. But how does the Patriot Act do that? How does it protect the constitutional rights of Americans? How does it help defeat
The tragic events of September 11th, 2001 showed the vulnerabilities of this country as a whole, reflecting the lack of attention this nation gave to terrorism. Following September 11th, it was clear that drastic preventative measures needed to be taken in order to avoid reoccurrence of a destructive and deadly act of terrorism (Simon, 2009). As a response to the attacks, The Patriot Act was passed in October of 2001 in order to give federal agencies a substantial increase in power in accessing, monitoring, and examining records and citizens who have been identified as, or could potentially be, risks to this country. This act also allowed federal agents to single out and watch potential individuals labeled as terrorists without evidence linking them to an actual terrorist organization, as well as allowing for an increase in wiretapping phones of potential suspects (Banks, 2010).
Donald Trump has a new plan for the immigration executive order. The original order was not as successful as it caused a lot of confusion. However, his new order will achieve some of the same goals.
Many innocent Americans lives were taken by an act of terrorism on September 11, 2001. This has terrorized many people who lost loved ones on this day. There was much controversy among the government’s officials and American citizens on what the course of action is to prevent this tragedy from happening again. After many days of formulating a plan, A bill was passed on October 26, 2001 by George W. Bush to help solve this issue. This new regulation became know as the Patriot Act. This bill provided the government the necessary tools to intercept American citizens private information, which would help discover suspicious activity among suspected terrorists threats. The main bill’s focus was to help prevent future terrorists from executing their malicious attacks. Despit the law’s ability to keep this country safe, we sacrifice some of our freedom for the good of each of us. Although the American government has retrieved personal information throughout history, our civil liberties should be preserved along with the safety of our exclusive information from the United States government.
The one of major media which is standing as the middle in the US, CNN reported this issue critically rather than the middle. I think just because Donald Trump’s executive order caused social disorder and criticism all over the world, and media is more critical of his personality due to his criticism for media. CNN provided viewers a lot of pictures and videos that they reported or was reporting in real time. This way of reporting is effective to let people know what’s really going on both inside of the US and outside. As I learned in the class, The Limited Effect Model can be applied because both those who support and disapprove Trump have strong beliefs and opinions that would not easily be changed by media. Besides, Agenda setting can be
