President Donald Trump is seeking a more aggressive approach to drug enforcement, a key component of his campaign promise to crack down on the nation’s drug supply.
Mr. Trump’s order directs federal prosecutors to prioritize drug raids, while also making the federal government more aggressive about prosecuting people who commit non-violent drug offenses.

The executive order also seeks to crackdown on sanctuary cities, which allow undocumented immigrants to remain in the country and are often the source of major drug traffickers.
They typically shield their residents from arrest or prosecution by refusing to cooperate with police.
The president also wants to expand drug testing programs for federal contractors, while giving states more leeway to enforce immigration laws.

He said in January he was considering a sweeping strategy of eliminating “the drug trade and all the cartels that are supporting it.”
But the president’s comments on Wednesday signaled a new direction.
He has been trying to shift attention away from the opioid crisis, which has seen tens of thousands of overdose deaths in recent months.
