                Executive Order 13882 of July 26, 2019

Blocking Property and Suspending Entry of Certain
                Persons Contributing to the Situation in Mali
                By the authority vested in me as President by the
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of
                America, including the International Emergency Economic
                Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the
                National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.)
                (NEA), the United Nations Participation Act of 1945 (22
                U.S.C. 287c) (UNPA), section 212(f) of the Immigration
                and Nationality Act of 1952 (8 U.S.C. 1182(f)), and
                section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and in view
                of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR)
                2374 of September 5, 2017, and UNSCR 2432 of August 30,
                2018.
                I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of
                America, find that the situation in Mali, including
                repeated violations of ceasefire arrangements made
                pursuant to the 2015 Agreement on Peace and
                Reconciliation in Mali; the expansion of terrorist
                activities into southern and central Mali; the
                intensification of drug trafficking and trafficking in
                persons, human rights abuses, and hostage-taking; and
                the intensification of attacks against civilians, the
                Malian defense and security forces, the United Nations
                Multidimensional Integrated Stabilizations Mission in
                Mali (MINUSMA), and international security presences,
                constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the
                national security and foreign policy of the United
                States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to
                deal with that threat. I hereby order:
                Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property
                that are in the United States, that hereafter come
                within the United States, or that are or hereafter come
                within the possession or control of any United States
                person of the following persons are blocked and may not
                be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise
                dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the
                Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State:
(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or
indirectly engaged in, any of the following in or in relation to Mali:
  (A) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, or stability
of Mali;
  (B) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or
institutions in Mali;
  (C) a hostile act in violation of, or an act that obstructs, including by
prolonged delay, or threatens the implementation of, the 2015 Agreement on
Peace and Reconciliation in Mali;
  (D) planning, directing, sponsoring, or conducting attacks against local,
regional, or state institutions, the Malian defense and security forces,
any international security presences, MINUSMA peacekeepers, other United
Nations or associated personnel, or any other peacekeeping operations;
  (E) obstructing the delivery or distribution of, or access to,
humanitarian assistance;
  (F) planning, directing, or committing an act that violates international
humanitarian law or that constitutes a serious human rights abuse or
violation, including an act involving the targeting of civilians through
[[Page 37056]]
the commission of an act of violence, abduction or enforced disappearance,
forced displacement, or an attack on a school, hospital, religious site, or
location where civilians are seeking refuge;
  (G) the use or recruitment of children by armed groups or armed forces in
the context of the armed conflict in Mali;
  (H) the illicit production or trafficking of narcotics or their
precursors originating or transiting through Mali;
  (I) trafficking in persons, smuggling migrants, or trafficking or
smuggling arms or illicitly acquired cultural property; or
  (J) any transaction or series of transactions involving bribery or other
corruption, such as the misappropriation of Malian public assets or
expropriation of private assets for personal gain or political purposes;
(ii) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial,
material, or technological support for, or goods or services in support of,
any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to
this order; or
(iii) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act
for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and
interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order.
                    (b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this
                section apply except to the extent provided by
                statutes, or in regulations, orders, directives, or
                licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and
                notwithstanding any contract entered into or any
                license or permit granted prior to the date of this
                order.
                Sec. 2. The unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant
                entry into the United States of aliens determined to
                meet one or more of the criteria in section 1 of this
                order would be detrimental to the interests of the
                United States, and the entry of such persons into the
                United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, is
                hereby suspended, except where the Secretary of State
                determines that the person's entry is in the national
                interest of the United States, including when the
                Secretary so determines based on a recommendation of
                the Attorney General, that the person's entry would
                further important United States law enforcement
                objectives. Such persons shall be treated as persons
                covered by section 1 of Proclamation 8693 of July 24,
                2011 (Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to United
                Nations Security Council Travel Bans and International
                Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions).
                Sec. 3. I hereby determine that the making of donations
                of the types of articles specified in section 203(b)(2)
                of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the
                benefit of any person whose property and interests in
                property are blocked pursuant to section 1 of this
                order would seriously impair my ability to deal with
                the national emergency declared in this order, and I
                hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1
                of this order.
                Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 of this order
                include but are not limited to:
                    (a) the making of any contribution or provision of
                funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of
                any person whose property and interests in property are
                blocked pursuant to this order; and
                    (b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of
                funds, goods, or services from any such person.
                Sec. 5. (a) Any transaction that evades or avoids, has
                the purpose of evading or avoiding, causes a violation
                of, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set
                forth in this order is prohibited.
                    (b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the
                prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.
                Sec. 6. For the purposes of this order:
                    (a) the term ``person'' means an individual or
                entity;
[[Page 37057]]
                    (b) the term ``entity'' means a partnership,
                association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group,
                subgroup, or other organization; and
                    (c) the term ``United States person'' means any
                United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity
                organized under the laws of the United States or any
                jurisdiction within the United States (including
                foreign branches), or any person in the United States.
                Sec. 7. For those persons whose property and interests
                in property are blocked pursuant to this order who
                might have a constitutional presence in the United
                States, I find that because of the ability to transfer
                funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to
                such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this
                order would render those measures ineffectual. I
                therefore determine that for these measures to be
                effective in addressing the national emergency declared
                in this order, there need be no prior notice of a
                listing or determination made pursuant to section 1 of
                this order.
                Sec. 8. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation
                with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to
                take such actions, including promulgating rules and
                regulations, and to employ all powers granted to the
                President by IEEPA and the UNPA as may be necessary to
                implement this order. The Secretary of the Treasury
                may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of
                these functions within the Department of the Treasury.
                All agencies of the United States Government shall take
                all appropriate measures within their authority to
                carry out the provisions of this order.
                Sec. 9. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation
                with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to
                submit the recurring and final reports to the Congress
                on the national emergency declared in this order,
                consistent with section 40l(c) of the NEA (50 U.S.C.
                164l(c)) and section 204(c) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C.
                1703(c)).
                Sec. 10. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed
                to impair or otherwise affect:
(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or
the head thereof; or
(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget
relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.
                    (b) This order shall be implemented consistent with
                applicable law and subject to the availability of
                appropriations.
[[Page 37058]]
                    (c) This order is not intended to, and does not,
                create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural,
                enforceable at law or in equity by any party against
                the United States, its departments, agencies, or
                entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any
                other person.
