President Joe Biden lifts Trump’s entry ban on Nigeria, others
Newly sworn-in President Joe Biden of the United States has used his first day in office to issue some executive orders unhitching some of former President Donald Trump’s orders on climate change and immigration implemented in 2017.
Among the 17 executive orders and presidential actions, President Biden signed on Wednesday were the order to end a travel ban from countries including Nigeria, Eritrea, Yemen, Sudan, and nine other countries.
He has called the travel ban biased and an insult to the country’s values.
President Biden has also sent a bill to Congress to overhaul the country’s immigration system, his team said earlier.
