Joe Biden who will take office on the 20th of January, 2021 said that he will introduce an immigration regulation immediately that contraries Trump’s policies, as a response to the question about his administration plans for his inaugural day. He had assured renovations in immigration within 100 days of taking the oath of office previously and on January 8th he told reporters in Wilmington, Delaware that “I will introduce an immigration bill immediately and have it sent to the appropriate committees to begin movement.”
Trump’s administration focused on limiting immigration from its days till the final year by issuing a travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries, toughening immigration rules on asylum seekers in the US, supported a merit-based immigration system and also tried to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) which was stopped by the Supreme Court. The White House used the Covid-19 pandemic as a cover to execute these policies over the last several months.
Biden’s two of the main election promises were that he would reverse the “cruel” immigration policies of the Trump’s administration and he would also revoke Trump’s administrative orders on environmental issues by saying that, “I will in fact, countermand the executive orders that the president has in fact initiated that are contrary to, what I think, is either his authority and/or even if it is his authority, contrary to the interest of the United States on environmental issues and a whole range of other things.” He had also sworn that on his inaugural day he would rejoin the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change from which the US withdrew last year and said that the committees will hold hearings on several issues about infrastructure and what should be done to promote a green economy.
He has also promised to insist everyone to wear masks in all interstate transportation, federal authorities and facilities and said that he is committed to vaccinate 100 million people in the first 100 days of his office. He said that “I am committed to moving as rapidly as possible to get the vaccine to teachers and the material to children that can provide for the safe opening of our schools at the end of that–beginning at the end of that 100 days.”.
