2021-01-27   |   by CusiGO

On Sunday, in the quiet Georgetown District of Washington, more than a dozen beautiful black cars parked in front of the pink front of a fashionable sandwich shop called “your mom.”. This is the president’s caravan. It’s bringing Joe Biden to his Sunday mass. Then it’s back to the White House. It stops to get a sesame bagel full of cream cheese for the commander in chief, who waves to him from the window. On his fifth day in the White House, Joe Biden stayed there for five days, peaking in restaurant visits to the city compared with his predecessor. During his four years as president, Donald Trump knew only one way to an institution in the capital. He went to the barbecue in his hotel. Of course, this is not to say that the White House has no other resources to stop a crossroads in Georgetown to satisfy the ultimate desire of the world’s most powerful people for cheese donuts. But Sunday’s visit is an example of Biden’s first week at the White House: trying to get rid of his predecessor’s pattern in all aspects and bury his legacy as soon as possible.

Those who promise to build bridges for their political opponents will have to wait. So far, in his first week in office on Wednesday, President Biden has replaced the executive branch to reverse his predecessor’s most controversial policy, and in a series of decrees, from executive orders to more vague memoranda, Make a new route from the beginning, not through the Capitol.

This is a record number for the president’s first week. Apart from bagels and changes in eating habits, these are some of the most relevant decisions the president made in the first seven days.

He also signed measures against discrimination against Asian Americans to strengthen ties between the government and Native American tribes. Just in the first week, trump ended his veto on tourists from seven major Muslim countries.

Through ambitious legislative initiatives and a series of other executive orders, President Biden has been hoping for a 180 degree turn in immigration policy since the first week, making it clear that the United States will become the host country again.

He ordered undocumented people to be included in the government’s 10-year census, and trump wanted to exclude them. It abolished Trump’s policy of protecting communities from deportation of undocumented immigrants. He submitted an immigration reform to Congress, offering an option to normalize the status of an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States, and plans to provide immediate permanent residency to dreamers, about 700000 young people who illegally crossed the border with their parents when they were minors.
