It’s Tuesday.

Tuesday marks President Biden’s 13th day of his first 100 day’s in office.

For day 13, President Biden is expected to sign three Executive Actions regarding immigration. He will address the public at 5:00 p.m. D.C., time prior to signing the immigration actions.

There will be a separate thread carrying President Biden’s remarks.

The White House posted a fact-sheet writing that “today’s actions build on actions,” President Biden took on his first day in office.

Today’s Executive Actions will:

  • Create a Task Force to Reunify Families.
  • Develop a Strategy to Address Irregular Migration Across the Southern Border and Create a Humane Asylum System. 
  • Restore Faith in Our Legal Immigration System and Promote Integration of New Americans.

There will be more information provided later today on the immigration executive actions.

In follow-up news…

As the News Blender explained on Monday, President Biden met with 10 Republicans to discuss President Biden’s proposed $1.9 trillion in coronavirus relief spending.

The White House said in a statement that the meeting was “substantive and productive,” adding that “the group shared a desire to get help to the American people.”

But, of course, the But was coming…

They said that while there were areas of agreement, President Biden “reiterated” his belief that Congress must respond “boldly and urgently.” President Biden also pointed out many areas they said the Republican Senators neglected in their proposal.

President Biden said he was still hopeful that the Rescue Plan can be passed with bipartisan support…

But, yeah, there is always another But…

They said, “a reconciliation package is a path to achieve that end.”

The group of 10 Republican Senators was led by Senator Susan Collins of Maine.

She posted a joint statement on Twitter following the meeting.

From the statement:

“It was an excellent meeting, and we are very appreciative that in his first official meeting in the Oval Office, President Biden chose to spend so much time with us discussing the response to the COVID crisis. We presented our proposal to the President, and we had a very productive exchange of views,” said the Senators.  “On five previous occasions, Congress has demonstrated that we can come together to deliver Covid-19 relief for the American people.  In the coming days, talks among our group, the Biden Administration, and other Senators will continue as we work in good faith on a sixth bipartisan package to help struggling families, get students back to school, assist our small businesses and their employees, provide relief for health care providers, and accelerate testing and vaccine programs.
