                Notice of July 21, 2015

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations

                On July 24, 2011, by Executive Order 13581, I declared 
                a national emergency with respect to transnational 
                criminal organizations pursuant to the International 
                Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) to 
                deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
                national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
                United States constituted by the activities of 
                significant transnational criminal organizations.

                The activities of significant transnational criminal 
                organizations have reached such scope and gravity that 
                they threaten the stability of international political 
                and economic systems. Such organizations are becoming 
                increasingly sophisticated and dangerous to the United 
                States; they are increasingly entrenched in the 
                operations of foreign governments and the international 
                financial system, thereby weakening democratic 
                institutions, degrading the rule of law, and 
                undermining economic markets. These organizations 
                facilitate and aggravate violent civil conflicts and 
                increasingly facilitate the activities of other 
                dangerous persons.

                The activities of significant transnational criminal 
                organizations continue to pose an unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign 
                policy, and economy of the United States. For this 
                reason, the national emergency declared in Executive 
                Order 13581 of July 24, 2011, and the measures adopted 
                on that date to deal with that emergency, must continue 
                in effect beyond July 24, 2015. Therefore, in 
                accordance with section 202(d) of the National 
                Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing 
                for 1 year the national emergency with respect to 
                transnational criminal organizations declared in 
                Executive Order 13581.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    July 21, 2015.
