As previously reported, United States President, Joe Biden has issued a number of executive orders undoing some of the policies and projects of his predecessor.

One of such is the executive order nullifying a travel ban imposed on citizens of some Muslim-majority countries by his predecessor, Donald Trump.

Some of the countries whose travel ban was reversed include Nigeria, Eritrea, Yemen, and Sudan.

“There’s no time to waste. These are just all starting points,” he said before signing the 17 executive orders in the White House, a statement that connotes the possibility of many more to come.

The development has been hailed by The American Civil Liberties Union, who lauded President Biden’s decision, berating his predecessor’s travel policy a “cruel Muslim ban that targeted Africans.”

Another of President Biden’s newly signed executive orders is the abolishment of the construction of a wall along the U.S-Mexico border to deny citizens of the latter outright entry.

President Biden also signed an executive order mandating all people to wear masks in all federal buildings and on federal lands to fight increase the country’s chances against the pandemic.

The 46th U.S. president also encouraged his people to mask up as “it’s a patriotic act that can save countless lives.”

“It’s time to mask up, America,” he wrote on his Twitter handle.

Also, against his predecessor’s plan to exit the World Health Organisation (WHO) by July 2021, President Biden has submitted a letter renewing the U.S. ”commitment to funding the organisation and honoring the country’s policies on climate change”.

Recall that before his exit from White House on Wednesday, Mr. Trump-led administration was notorious for its harsh policies against immigrants and asylum seekers, one of his many election campaign promises.

He tightened the policies amidst the coronavirus pandemic which rocked the globe, claiming his decision was to protect the American populace.
