President Biden on Friday revoked a series of Trump-era executive orders issued. The executive orders were mainly on immigration, social media, and confederate statues.
The White House reported the measure signed by Biden that leaves without effect some proclamations and executive orders issued by former President Donald Trump.
In one of the announcements, Biden reported the end of a policy that prevented immigrants unable to pay for health expenses in the United States from obtaining visas and also those citizens who could not prove that they would obtain health insurance one month after arriving in the country.
Similarly, Biden assured that his government wants to “expand access to affordable, quality health care,” but for this, it does not need to prohibit the entry of immigrants with few economic resources.
The Democrat overturned a Trump order for the Justice Department to investigate companies such as Facebook and Twitter for removing “false” or “inciting violence” content.
Other Trump-era executive orders revoked by Biden
Also revoked was an order that Trump signed in June 2020 to request that any act of vandalism against federal property be pursued “to the greatest extent possible.”
Within the orders, he also referred to foreign aid: his goal was that all U.S. assistance would be distributed with the same logo and not with the different symbols it currently bears, depending on the agency delivering it.
Biden also killed a project to build a new monument called the “National Garden of America’s Heroes,” with which Trump wanted to pay tribute to a variety of historical figures, from music stars such as Whitney Houston to conservative politicians such as the evangelical Reverend Billy Graham.
