Joe Biden junks Muslim ban in US during his first day as president


- Advertisment -

Shortly after being sworn as the new United States of America President, Joe Biden has already signed 15 executive actions, undoing policies set by his predecessor, Donald Trump. 

Biden said that there was ‘no time to waste’ in issuing the executive orders, memorandums, and directives. 

“Some of the executive actions I’m going to be signing today are going to help change the course of the Covid crisis, we’re going to combat climate change in a way that we haven’t done so far and advance racial equity and support other underserved communities,” the new US president said.

“These are just all starting points,” he further added. 

Biden has also reportedly revoked Trump’s emergency declaration that helped fund the construction of a border wall and ended a travel ban on some majority-Muslim countries. 

The Muslim travel ban restricted citizens from 12 countries, including Iran, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Sudan, Tanzania, and North Korea. 

The Muslim travel ban was imposed by Trump in 2017, during his first week in office.
