White House science adviser promoted to ministerial rank under Biden

White House science adviser promoted to ministerial rank under Biden

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden named pioneering geneticist Eric Lander as the director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy on Friday, elevating the post to Cabinet-level status for first time.

Ali Noorani, head of the National Migration Forum, who was among those briefed on Thursday evening, said migrants would be placed on an eight-year path to citizenship.

As Joe Biden moves into the Oval Office, it is clear that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will look to cement the special relationship with the Democrat over the next four years.

Biden will be inaugurated on Wednesday when he will reportedly sign a number of executive orders. His presidential tweets will become a permanent record of his interactions with the American people and will be available @POTUS45.

For many Indians, especially those in the information technology industry, America remains a dream destination but under the Trump administration, their efforts to immigrate to the USA faced severe challenges.

US President-elect Joe Biden has announced a United States dollars 1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package to tackle the economic fallout from the pandemic, including direct financial aid to average Americans, support to businesses and to provide a boost to the national vaccination programme.

These actions will change the course of COVID-19, combat climate change, promote racial equity and support other underserved communities, and rebuild the economy in ways that strengthen the backbone of the country - the working men and women who built the nation, Klein wrote.

Biden is expected to take swift executive actions to reverse other Trump immigration actions, including an end to the prohibition on arrivals from several predominantly Muslim countries.

Notably, Trump is yet to congratulate Biden on his win in November 3 presidential election and he has acknowledged defeat indirectly. Biden will also address another crisis ― the global climate crisis ― on Inauguration Day by taking steps to rejoin the Paris Agreement.

He would also take a different approach from the Trump administration's border wall for enforcement, investing in technology at the border instead.

He said Biden would issue other orders in the succeeding days to combat the virus that has killed almost 400,000 Americans and to speed up vaccinations against it.
