Presidential Executive Order on Enforcing Federal Law with Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking

As the title states, the order is aimed at transnational crime, especially drug trafficking. After reading it, I cannot see any reason for it being issued. As far as I can tell it does nothing more than is currently being done, creates no new task force, etc.

Either I am missing something (that may come back to haunt me later), or this is a “big splash” to send a message to his “base” that he is getting tough on international cartels.

Executive Order signed February 9, 2017.
