Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Biden Executive Orders on Day 1 to Reverse Many of Trump’s Most Contentious Actions

HeadlineJan 19, 2021

President-elect Biden is promising to issue a slew of executive orders on his first day in office, overturning some of President Trump’s most contentious actions. Biden is set to extend moratoriums on evictions and foreclosures, extend a freeze on federal student loan payments and halt accumulating interest on those loans.

Biden is also planning to order a mask mandate for interstate travelers and visitors to federal buildings. In his inaugural address, he will ask U.S. residents to commit to wearing masks for at least 100 days.

Biden will cancel Trump’s travel ban targeting majority-Muslim nations. He’s also set to propose an immigration bill providing an eight-year path to citizenship for undocumented people in the U.S.

Biden will also sign an order returning the United States to the Paris Climate Agreement. And, in a historic move, Biden is expected to order the cancellation of the permit for the $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline.
