Donald Trump formally created the “Office of the Former President” in South Florida this week; establishing the platform as a means to “carry on the agenda of the Trump administration through advocacy and organizing.”
“The announcement came as Democrats marched the impeachment case against Trumpto the Senate Monday night for the start of his historic trial. Republican senators, meanwhile, were easing off their criticism of the former president and shunning calls to convict him over his supposed role in the deadly siege at the U.S. Capitol,” reports Fox News.
“Today, the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, formally opened the Office of the Former President,” reads a statement released from the position. “President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American people.”
BIDEN’S PLAN: Next President Likely to Reveal ‘Pathway to Citizenship’ for Millions as First Big Bill
Incoming President Joe Biden will likely reveal his immigration plan as early as Wednesday evening; outlining a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal migrants over an eight year period.
“The Washington Post reported Monday that the bill, to be unveiled on Inauguration Day Wednesday, would put illegal immigrants into protected status and a five-year pathway to a green card. If they meet certain conditions, such as payment of taxes and a background check, they could then be put on a three-year pathway to citizenship. Some estimates put the population of illegal immigrants at around 12 million as of 2015, other estimates are higher,” reports Fox News.
“The Associated Press, which also reported that the eight-year path is in the bill, noted that it would be one of the fastest pathways to citizenship for illegal immigrants in recent years,” adds Fox.
“These are some of the things that we’re going to do on our immigration bill. And we believe it is smarter and a more humane way of approaching immigration for immigrants,” Harris said.
