Biden Seeks Quick Start With Executive Actions and Aggressive Legislation

On first day as president, Biden plans to issue 17 executive actions on COVID, climate change, immigration and more.

In an effort to mark a clean break from the Trump era, the president-elect plans to roll out dozens of executive orders in his first 10 days on top of a big stimulus plan and an expansive immigration bill.

Leading Civil Rights Organizations Oppose Creation of New Domestic Terrorism Legislation - The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights

DOJ already has more than 50 federal statutes it can use to investigate and prosecute white nationalists who participated in the insurrection. There is no need for new domestic terrorism legislation that will more than likely target Arab, Muslim, and Black and Brown Americans.

Biden must champion a new Civil Rights Act - The Boston Globe

Even while the nation reels from a deadly insurrection caused by Trump himself, his administration is working overtime to rollback our civil rights in his final hours in office.

The Trump administration spent four years rolling back civil rights. The Biden administration will have to push for sweeping reforms.

Trump’s ‘1776 report’ defends America’s founding on the basis of slavery and blasts progressivism.

GARBAGE: The report, released on MLK Day, denounces the charge that the American founders were hypocrites who preached equality even as they codified slavery in the Constitution and held slaves themselves.

The Trump White House released the report of the presidential “1776 Commission,” a sweeping attack on liberal thought and activism that calls for a “patriotic education,” defends America’s founding on the basis of slavery and likens progressivism to fascism.

Happening on #InaugurationDay: An end to the cruel Muslim ban, an extension of pandemic-related limits on evictions and student loan payments, an order for agencies to figure out how to reunite children separated from families at the border, and more.

In an effort to mark a clean break from the Trump era, the president-elect plans to roll out dozens of executive orders in his first 10 days on top of a big stimulus plan and an expansive immigration bill.

The protests from 1963 look similar to the protests of today - and while there have been many victories throughout the decades - there is still more work to be done. And even though we are all exhausted by inequality and white supremacy, justice is always worth fighting for. Let's honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by pushing his dream into 2021 and beyond. #MLKDay

Trump and McConnell's court-packing will affect our civil rights for DECADES.

On guns, abortion and voting rights, Trump leaves lasting mark on U.S. judiciary

Trump and McConnell's court-packing will affect our civil rights for DECADES.

When a U.S. appeals court declared that Florida could make it harder for convicted felons to vote - a ruling decried by civil rights activists - the impact of President Donald Trump's conservative judicial appointments was plain to see.

Black Southerners are wielding political power that was denied their parents and grandparents

More than a million Black people have moved to Georgia and other Southern states in the last 30 years, comprising a highly active voting bloc.

The Democrats' stunning victories in Georgia were partly the result of generations of African Americans moving to Atlanta and the Deep South -- reversing their ancestors' northward migration patterns and changing the electorate.

Before Capitol Riot, Republican Lawmakers Fanned the Flames

Trump isn't the only one who has been inciting violence over the past four years.

A “1776 moment”: Several of the president’s closest allies in Congress used bellicose language to urge their supporters to attend the Jan. 6 rally that turned into a deadly riot.

Column: Trump launches sneaky 11th-hour attacks on clean air, Medicaid, LGBTQ people

Although these rules are likely to be overturned by Biden, it's very telling of Trump's character that he is doing all he can in his final days to make life harder for people.

Trump's last-minute vandalism takes aim at clean air rules, Medicaid and anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people and other vulnerable Americans.

Analysis: Republicans still pushing false fraud claims to restrict voting

The GOP members who fanned the flames of Trump's violent rhetoric and lies should resign in disgrace - not create strict new voting laws based on his lies.

Even after President Donald Trump's disproven allegations of voter fraud fueled last week's deadly assault on the US Capitol, Republicans across an array of swing states are still touting his baseless allegations to advance measures that would make it tougher to vote.

Trump Administration Says the Inconvenience of Rescheduling Executions Outweighs the “Harm” to Prisoners Set to Die

The only woman on death row was killed yesterday - the first woman in 70 years to be executed by the government - because Trump said it's too inconvenient NOT to kill.

The Justice Department is pushing ahead with plans for three executions this week even though two of the prisoners have COVID-19 and multiple courts have objected to the government’s aggressive tactics.

Donald Trump has been impeached for inciting white nationalist insurrectionists to attack the Capitol – making him the first U.S. president to be impeached twice.

STEP THREE: Tell your GOP reps who refused to protect our democracy to resign in disgrace.

Last week, the world was horrified to witness a deadly insurrection in our nation’s Capitol that attempted to use mob violence fueled by white supremacy and anti-Semitism to overturn the results of a free and secure election and suppress the votes of millions of people. What we witnessed was nothing less than a frontal attack on our democracy by the sitting president of the United States, who weaponized racist and misleading rhetoric to incite violence. He must be impeached! #ImpeachTrump
