On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed fifteen executive orders (EO), including implementing a national mask mandate. Biden headed to the Oval Office immediately after his inauguration. “I thought there’s no time to wait. Get to work immediately,” he told reporters, sitting at the Resolute Desk and wearing a mask.

National Mask Mandate

Chief among Biden’s first executive orders concerned a national mask mandate. The EO requires the wearing of face masks inside federal buildings. It also covers land controlled by the federal government, such as national parks. The EO also requires masks during interstate travel on trains, buses, and planes. In particular, the mandate orders that every American should wear a mask when they are around people outside their household. It also asks every governor to make mask-wearing mandatory in their state, and local authorities to support their state’s orders.

A “100 Days Masking Challenge” encourages Americans to wear masks for at least 100 days. In addition, all federal workers and contractors should follow social distancing guidelines. Notably, the EO does not have the authority to change policies in individual cities or states. Instead, Biden will contact state public and health officials and ask for help.

Keystone Pipeline

One executive order revoked permits for projects deemed that didn’t fit with the nation’s best interests. Prominent among them is the Keystone XL pipeline, a controversial pipeline that travels from Alberta, Canada, to Steele City, Nebraska. Biden revoked the permits for this program and gave instructions to review similar contracts that have environmental impacts.

Republicans are up in arms over this particular EO. Biden’s “policies from day one hurt American workers and our economy,” said Biden’s Senator Shelley Moore Capito (WV). “Killing the Keystone XL pipeline and rejoining the Paris agreement will eliminate good-paying jobs,” he added. The House Republican Conference agreed, “The Biden administration has made it clear that on Day One they will immediately cater to the far left instead of working to help all Americans and move our country forward,” their statement read.

Immigration Concerns

Halting funding for one of Trump’s major accomplishments puts an end to the planned wall along the US-Mexico border. The EO will also look into finding a landing place for funds diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction. “The Biden administration is going to have a very different approach to regional migration,” said Incoming National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan. He added that the new administration will put special emphasis on finding and addressing the root causes of migration in the region. In addition, Biden will also reverse course on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Instead of Trump’s original proposal to end the program, the new EO will now preserve and fortify DACA.

In addition, Biden will issue another executive order that repeals a previous Trump EO directing crackdowns on undocumented aliens. Instead, Biden will ask the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies to set new immigration policies. These policies should protect the American people. They must also stay in line with American values and priorities.

Other Executive Orders

Biden also issued a number of EOs that aimed to rejoin the global community. This includes an EO that rejoins the US to the Paris Climate Accord. Another one reverses the US’s planned withdrawal from the World Health Organization. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious disease expert, will lead the US delegation.

Yet another dealt with the Muslim travel ban. Biden reversed an earlier order banning travel in certain Muslim countries. Trump said terrorist threats necessitated the ban. However,  Sullivan said the policy’s basis is xenophobia and religious animus. Another order dealt with including non-citizens from the national census. There are also orders extending the eviction and foreclosure moratoriums until March 31. These are for this hit by the housing affordability crisis during the pandemic.  Another one asked for deferment of student loans payment and interests until September 30.

    Why do we even have a Department of Homeland Security if we’re going to throw open the borders to anyone that wants to leaco off of America? That will come back to bite us in the ass.
    The pipeline needs to be continued because the jobs are critical for our economy,

  • Dawn Coffin says:

    Just plain ignorant to interfere with anything that affects jobs. Short sighted to unilaterally stop the pipeline.

    Some of these things are grade school mentality to damage former President Trump’d legacy.

  • Jt says:

    This whole covid thing was all political. I am so disgusted with our government!

  • NHL says:

    Biden’s urgent executive orders have no sense. He jis intent on undoing all the good President Trump did just because “he can!”

    WOLVERINES!

  • Vera says:

    No I don’t agree. Everyone knows why he is doing this. If something works, leave it alone. He is already hurting American people. Help those that need it is great. He will ruin this country, him and the people who dictate. I would hope he would think about his grandchildren but he is training them to continue in the evil ways. I will pray for him, but I surely don’t agree with him.

    Joe Biden has got to be the dumbest most ignorant SOB I have ever seen… one day and is already destroying this country… the people need to wake up!!! They picked a man so stupid he can’t complete a sentence not because he was good for the job but because he is so stupid and so incompetent that they can let his dumb ass ride it out and be their little bitch boy for a very short time and then that trash ass bitch take over… 1/20/2021 will forever go down in history as the day america lost its freedom and every single great thing our people have fought so hard and so long to protect. It truly is disgusting and absolutely blows me away how we allowed this to happen…. very very very disappointing and I truly hope that OUR GREAT PRESIDENT TRUMP will figure out a way to save us from this twisted evil group of people who want nothing but to destroy our country and we can all KEEP AMERICA GREAT!!!

  • Joe Biden says:

    He is illegitimate therefore everything he touches, signs, etc is a criminal act. It’s just that simple.

  • Doug Pendarvis says:

    Why is Biden dumping the wall on the Mexico/USA border. Do we really need more illegal immigrants to freely walk across the open border. Why is Biden shutting off work on the Keystone pipeline. People will lose their jobs. I thought
    America was to help the fine citizens find jobs, not take them away. Are the citizens of the USA ready for a socialist country. Biden does not know what he hs already done to destroy by destroying what Donald Trump proved would work. Now what is Bidens next move to destroy this beautiful country. I sure don’t agree with Joe being our president.

  • Jeremiah Nunn says:

    No I do not agree with him, the only thing he is trying to do is to reverse everything Trump done! They are the stupidest group of people that this country has ever seen. He should have started off with getting rid of Nancy Pelosi she should be charged with treason! I truly hope that the ones that voted for him are the ones that are hurt the most he doesn’t care that canceling this will hurt the economy because he has the money to survive so why should he care!!! They will never take away the rights we have I hope that before that would happen the people would take a stand we need someone that will preserve our rights not destroy them!

  • Jeremiah Nunn says:

    Our right to have guns is next, then our right to leave the house when we want.

  • Doug Pendarvis says:

    Biden wants everyone to wear a mask. Why does Bidens mask not fit him. When he breaths out the air passes by the sides of his nose making it useless. Take a look at Bidens photo on this site and you will see an improper mask he is wearing. It just does not fit. I would thing, as Biden is our president. He needs to make an example of himself wearing a proper fitting mask before forcing citizens of the great USA to do so. Biden needs to get a proper fitting mask before forcing everyone to wear a mask.
    Fair is fair.

  • Anonymous says:

    Biden is just the puppet or the “talking head” of the same hidden power brokers of this country who stole the election through fraudulent vote schemes and illegal manipulation of absentee ballots.

    It is blatently obvious to anyone with even the slightest of intuition and observational awareness, that Biden is not physically, intellectually or cognitively capable of serving as President of the United States and in all probability will end up dead due to “natural causes” by design of those same powers and by the same hands of those responsible for his fraudulent election, in order to fulfill their ultimate “dream scam” of placing Camela Harris in the “Big Boy’s” chair by sucession to the Presidency, which could not have been accomplished with her or any other tarnished liberal candidate in the current state of politics in the US.

    If I were Camela however, I would be constantly looking over my shoulder if that chain of events comes to pass, since the next in line for the “throne” of the USA after the VP is The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and there has never been, nor will there ever be, a more fervently ambitious individual who covets that position more.

    Wait and see!!

  • Michael says:

    Since Biden wasn’t actually elected by the people he doesn’t represent Government by the people for the people. He needs to leave the office immediately and put the winner of the election back in. Anything he does the people should ignore because he is not really the President.

  • Ed says:

    This moron isn’t concerned about homeland security. He’s actually considering doing away with the department.
