President Joe Biden’s Remarks at Signing of an Executive Order on Racial Equity

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Good afternoon, folks. I thank the Vice President for being with me today as well. In my campaign for President, I made it very clear that the moment had arrived as a nation where we face deep racial inequities in America and system- — systemic racism that has plagued our nation for far, far too long.

I said it over the course of the past year that the blinders had been taken come off the nation of the American people. What ma- — what many Americans didn’t see, or had simply refused to see, couldn’t be ignored any longer.

Blackburn Blackburn Fights Against Birth Tourism, Illegal Immigration Fraud

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – United States Senator Marsha Blackburn (R—Tenn.) has introduced legislation to eliminate loopholes that foreign nationals exploit to become U.S. citizens.

“American citizenship should not be for sale,” said Senator Blackburn. “Foreign nationals should not be allowed to come to the United States with the sole purpose of giving birth to obtain U.S. citizenship.”

The Ban Birth Tourism Act will amend the Immigration and Nationality Act and ban birth tourism as a permissible basis for obtaining a temporary visitor visa. This legislation is in line with the U.S. Department of State’s rule change in January 2020 prohibiting the issuance of temporary visitor visas for birth tourists.

Memorandum For The Secretary Of Housing And Urban Development

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Background and Policy.  Diverse and inclusive communities strengthen our democracy.  But our Nation’s history has been one of great struggle toward this ideal.  During the 20th century, Federal, State, and local governments systematically implemented racially discriminatory housing policies that contributed to segregated neighborhoods and inhibited equal opportunity and the chance to build wealth for Black, Latino, Asian American, and Pacific Islander, and Native American families, and other underserved communities. 

United States President Joe Biden.
