Biden to reverse Trump’s Muslim ban on inauguration day | Donald Trump Information
Biden’s new chief of staff’s memo shows that the president-elect is trying to quickly reverse several Trump policies.
On his first day in office, US President-elect Joe Biden plans to issue a series of orders, including one to lift the controversial travel bans for several predominantly Muslim countries.
According to a memo circulated on Saturday by Ron Klain, Biden’s new chief of staff at the White House, the new U.S. administration will initiate a series of reversals of policies implemented by U.S. President Donald Trump in the first ten days of its term in office.
This also includes new measures to prevent coronavirus, the resumption of the Paris Climate Agreement and immigration laws that enable millions to obtain citizenship.
Shortly after taking office in 2017, Trump issued an executive order banning travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
However, this order has been revised several times in response to legal challenges and a version of it was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2018.
“Poison of hatred”
Analysts say the ban could easily be overturned as it was enacted by executive order and presidential proclamation, although lawsuits from conservative opponents could delay the process.
“As President, I will work with you to remove the poison of hatred from our society, to honor your contributions, and to seek your ideas. My government will be like America, with Muslim Americans at all levels, ”Biden said in October.
Other reversals include expanding pandemic restrictions on evictions and student loan payments, imposing mask mandates on federal goods and interstate travel, and a solution for reuniting immigrant children separated from their families.
Biden also plans to propose new laws that will naturalize 11 million undocumented people currently residing in the country, as well as a promise to vaccinate 100 million people in his first 100 days in office.
Biden had previously announced that it would urge Congress to approve a $ 1.9 billion stimulus package to help tackle an economic slump caused by the coronavirus.
